Municipalities are increasingly challenged with safely managing batteries alongside other materials in their waste and recycling streams. While batteries represent only a fraction of overall waste, they present a substantial risk to people and property when improperly disposed.

Call2Recycle®, the country’s leading consumer battery recycling and product stewardship program, can help by delivering a turnkey recycling solution with flexible services to drive safe recycling practices. The program complies with state and federal battery recycling laws, upholding responsible recycling standards like R2 certification. 

Call2Recycle also provides recycling incentives for municipalities and haulers through its GreenVantage offering, making them an ideal partner to safely and smartly manage battery recycling efforts.
