Municipal Best Practices Guide

At Call2Recycle we believe municipalities play a key role in getting out messages to their communities.

To implement a successful battery recycling program, municipalities can follow these THREE steps:

  1. Designate a champion who is committed to success and can help drive engagement.
  2. Follow that up by educating regularly to ensure residents know how and where they can recycle.
  3. Engage community support through consistent program launches including special recycling events.

Please view our Best Practice Guide for Municipalities which will provide more information on how to inform and inspire your community to act on good recycling intentions.
