Damaged or Recalled Batteries (DDR)

Need to recycle damaged, defective or recalled batteries? Whether you have just one or are managing a large recall, Call2Recycle has recycling kits and options available.


Cellphones and their batteries are one of the easiest electronics to recycle. They can be refurbished for resale or recycled and the materials used in new products.

*Single-use batteries are accepted by select collection partners in the U.S. Check out the drop-off locations near you to verify which materials they accept.  You can also visit our store to order collection kits for single use and rechargeable batteries. 

We recommend that you remove the personal information on your phone, although it is not required. In the recycling process, the memory on the phones is destroyed and reusable materials are recycled before they are resold. If you want to remove the information from your phone, you can consult your cellphone user manual, manufacturer’s web site or contact one of our processors The Wireless Alliance to learn how to erase your data.
