Celebrate National Battery Day on Feb. 18
Celebrate National Battery Day across the US and Canada this February.
What would your life be like without batteries? Look around you and count how many of the items in your home use batteries–from cell phones to tablets to remote controls and power tools. Batteries are a convenient source of portable power for today’s electronics.
February 18 is the national day to celebrate the important role of the battery in our lives and inspire us to keep them out of the landfill by recycling them.
You can participate in National Battery Day by collecting your old, used household batteries (under 11 lb.) and taking them to one of Call2Recycle’s 30,000 drop-off sites in North America. To find the nearest drop-off location, use the Call2Recycle zip code locator. Retailers such as Best Buy, Canadian Tire, Lowe’s, Rona, Staples and The Home Depot are part of this network and will accept single-use and/or rechargeable batteries, depending on your location. Batteries will be recycled at no cost to you during this event.
Encourage your friends and family to recycle their batteries by posting a photo with the hashtag #NationalBatteryDay on Twitter and Facebook. For more information about recycling your batteries, visit the Call2Recycle.org web site.Share
