Stewards FAQ


How does a company become an industry steward?

By submitting an Industry Steward Inquiry Form, we can confirm that you qualify.

Who is Call2Recycle®?

We are the country’s largest consumer battery stewardship and recycling program, with a network of thousands of public collection sites. We were founded in the mid-1990s as a voluntary, industry-run initiative to keep the heavy metals from rechargeable batteries out of the solid waste stream.

How are you funded?

Call2Recycle operates a rechargeable battery and a single-use battery program in the United States to provide single programs for full compliance to all battery EPR laws. Each program is designed and maintained so that the program fully complies with the evolving legislation across the country.

What is product stewardship?

Product stewardship is the act of minimizing the health, safety, environmental, and social impact of a product and its packaging throughout its lifecycle. While product manufacturers or producer have the greatest ability to influence this impact, suppliers, retailers, regulators and consumers also play significant roles.
