Call2Recycle and The Home Depot Talk Battery Recycling and Sustainability

American Milestones hosted by Joan Lunden exclusively on PBS

Did you know it's important to recycle batteries and cellphones? Want to know why?

The mobile products that power our lives contain rechargeable batteries – we depend on these technologically advanced products every day to make our lives easier. It's important that we all do our part to reuse valuable resources in batteries and cellphones by recycling them instead of throwing them away. In this online documentary see how the Call2Recycle program partners with retailers such as The Home Depot to make battery and cellphone recycling easy and convenient. We thank The Home Depot, and all our 30,000 participating locations, for committing to sustainable practices.

Call2Recycle® is a program of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) promoting environmental sustainability by providing free battery and cell phone recycling in North America. RBRC is a 501(c)4 nonprofit public service organization. We invite you to join our efforts to advance green business practices and environmental sustainability.
