One of the program’s primary commitments as North America’s most comprehensive battery recycling program is to safely and efficiently transport batteries from 34,000 collection locations to the recycling facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Call2Recycle® seeks third-party certification to meet the highest standards of responsible recycling, and is a member of CHWMEG for independent third-party auditing of facilities. In addition, Call2Recycle is the first battery recycling program to obtain Responsible Recycling© (R2) certification.
