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.
