One of the program’s primary commitments as North America’s most comprehensive battery collection recycling program is to safely and efficiently transport batteries from participating collection locations to its approved network of sorters and processors.

Call2Recycle® seeks third-party certification to meet the highest standards of responsible recycling, and is a member of CHWMEG for independent third-party auditing of facilities. In addition, Call2Recycle is the first battery recycling program to obtain Responsible Recycling© (R2) certification.
