Federal Requirements for Battery Recycling

As battery stewardship regulations become more common in North America, Call2Recycle helps battery and product manufacturers fulfill recycling requirements in the U.S. and Canada, including compliance with extensive state, provincial and federal regulations, such as the Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable Battery Act (The Battery Act).In the US, federal law requires, with certain exceptions, used nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd) and lead (Pb) batteries to be managed as Universal Waste (40 CFR Part 273). The Universal Waste Rule prohibits handlers (e.g., contractors) from disposing of waste Ni-Cd and Pb batteries and further indicates that these batteries must be sent for recycling.
