The California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) recognized four companies, including Call2Recycle, for their positive environmental impacts at the organization’s 5th Annual Arrow Awards ceremony, which was held during the California Resource Recovery Association and the Solid Waste Association of North America’s 38th annual conference on August 5.
Call2Recycle received the Bow and Arrow Award for Coalition Building to recognize the organization’s strides in product stewardship excellence in California. Since it first established its presence in California in 1999, Call2Recycle has partnered with various businesses, municipalities and universities to collect over nine million pounds of rechargeable batteries from more than 2,500 drop‐off sites. In 2013, California became the first state to collect more than one million pounds of batteries two years in a row.
CPSC is California’s thought leader and expert on Product Stewardship and the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) movement. CPSC recognized Call2Recycle’s impact in supporting its mission to maintain and expand a “network of local governments, non-government organizations, businesses, and individuals” that build “policies and projects where producers share in the responsibility for managing problem products at end of life.”
