STEP 1: Batteries and Cellphones Collected at Collection Sites
Collection sites throughout the U.S. and Canada accept rechargeable batteries and cellphones for recycling from their employees or the public. There is no cost to recycle. Simply drop off at any Call2Recycle collection location.
Who can be a collection site? Businesses, retailers, communities, and public agencies can participate and recycle for free. You can choose to collect only from your staff or collect from the public. Request information to become a collection site.
STEP 2: Collection Locations Ship Batteries and Cellphones to Recycling Facility
Collection sites ship batteries and cellphones for free to contracted sorting and recycling facilities. Collection sites setup with Call2Recycle’s collection kit will automatically receive additional kits and materials when their inventory runs low. We also offer bulk shipping options. Learn more about becoming a participant.
STEP 3: New Products are Born
Precious metals recovered from used batteries create new batteries and stainless steel products. cellphones are recycled, refurbished and/or resold. When resold, a portion of the proceeds are used to fund the cellphone collection program and public education. None of the broken down material makes its way into landfills. Since Call2Recycle was created in 1996, 70 million pounds has been diverted from being landfilled.
