You know those old single-use, alkaline batteries – AA, AAA, 9V, D-cell, C-cell, button cell, and more – that you have sitting in your junk drawer or what about all of those that you have already thrown away? Your dead batteries no longer have to be buried in a landfill or hoarded in your drawers forever.

Simply bring your old single-use batteries (don’t forget your rechargeables too!) to a participating collection site, including local businesses, retailers and solid waste districts, in your community.

Obligated Producers

Under Vermont law, producers cannot sell primary batteries in the State unless they participate in a stewardship plan, which provides free collection and recycling of primary batteries for consumers.

Collection Partners

Over 100 Vermont retailers, businesses, communities and public agencies participate in the Call2Recycle® program as collection sites. Beginning January 1, 2016, consumers can recycle both single-use and rechargeable batteries as well as cellphones through these collection sites.
