The Call2Recycle program enables stewards to fulfill recycling requirements in the U.S., including compliance with state and federal regulations, such as the U.S. Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Act (The Battery Act).
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.
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.
