You Still Have Time to Give – Batteries, That Is

C2R Holiday Card‘Tis the season to dust off those holiday decorations, hunt for the perfect gift and do your part to recharge the planet! An important part of holiday shopping includes purchasing extra batteries that power toys and portable electronics.

In the spirit of giving, please remember to help keep our planet cleaner by returning your used batteries, up to 11 pounds each, at a drop-off location near you. Call2Recycle® also encourages program participants to return boxes as soon as they are full.


Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

The Armed Forces Protect the Planet, Too

Renewable EnergyIt’s not just the uniforms that are green. Many military bases invest in renewable energy and water conservation, as well as recycling programs to reduce waste.

The armed forces enjoy the benefits of mobility with the use of many cordless electronic devices powered by batteries. The Department of Defense instructs military installations to properly dispose of used batteries. Call2Recycle supports hundreds of bases through its free battery recycling program.
