Recycling Batteries has never been easier

Call2Recycle is the official battery stewardship program in British Columbia, and we accept used household batteries (weighing less than 5 kg each) at no charge. There are over 1,700 locations where you can recycle your batteries in BC.

Do you want to become a Call2Recycle® collection site?

Program Benefits:

      • Used batteries are properly and safely recycled at no charge to you
      • An easy way to keep potentially hazardous waste from entering landfills and give reclaimed materials a second life
      • Collection kits and marketing materials provided at no charge
      • Free shipping (Collection Kit or Bulk)
      • Choice to collect from the public to increase foot traffic or to collect internally
      • Reporting and downstream tracking, including Certificates of Recycling




Do you:

  • Currently pay a licensee fee to Call2Recycle Canada, Inc.?
  • Sell batteries in British Columbia?

If you answered “yes” to both, if you haven’t done so already, your company is required by the Ministry of Environment to submit a signed appointment letter indicating that you have selected Call2Recycle as your agent. Questions? Please contact our Customer Service Team (888.224.9764)

What is an Industry Steward?

Battery and/or product manufacturers – or what Call2Recycle refers to as their Industry Stewards – have united to ensure that the batteries they are introducing into the marketplace are responsibly recycled when they reach their end of life. Licensees specifically refer to those manufacturers who are financially supporting the Call2Recycle program through the licensing and placement of battery seals on their rechargeable batteries and/or battery-powered products.


What are the Benefits?

  • Producer Responsibility: demonstrates your commitment to environmentally-sound recycling of batteries.
  • Regulatory Solution: fulfills manufacturers’ recycling requirements in the U.S. and Canada, including compliance with state, provincial and federal regulations, including The Battery Act
  • Simplicity: allows manufacturers to manage complexities by supporting one program


What batteries do you recycle?

  • Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd)
  • Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
  • Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
  • Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
  • Small Sealed Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb)
  • Single-Use Batteries (like alkalines)
