Powering a Sustainable Future: High Energy Battery Recycling
More and more products – at home, work, and play – are being powered by batteries! As the size of these products increases, the amount of energy needed to power them increases dramatically. Many large products, from lawn mowers to snow blowers to leaf blowers, require the use of high energy batteries (i.e., batteries over 300 watt hours). As these high energy batteries reach their end-of-life, having a recycling solution in place is fundamental to keeping people, property, and the environment safe.
Call2Recycle, Inc., in collaboration with the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) and the Power Tool Institute (PTI), has launched a program to facilitate the safe collection and responsible recycling of high energy batteries used in these industry products.
The High Energy Battery Recycling program, made possible through voluntary funding by dedicated and safety-conscious outdoor power equipment and power tool manufacturers, will establish a network of trained collection sites for users to easily drop off their batteries recycling!
