Collection Sites

What is a collection site?

A wide variety of retailers, businesses, communities and government agencies collect batteries and cellphones as part of the Call2Recycleprogram. Organizations participate to keep potentially toxic waste from the solid waste stream and make sure these materials are properly recycled. We have 30,000 public collection sites in both the U.S. and Canada. We also have internal collection sites, such as hospitals, military bases, businesses and government agencies, which collect batteries internally. These organizations are not listed in our locator.

How do we participate as a collection site?

We will need more information from you to determine the best fit for your organization. Visit our web page for more details. You can also request information from the Customer Service Teamor call 888.224.9764 for more information.

How do we add more collection sites to our account?

Adding new collection sites is easy. Just contact our Customer Service Team at 888.224.9764. Collection kits can be shipped directly to the new locations or to a central location for distribution. These kits include all the materials you need to set up a collection display area.

Our organization is already a collection site. How do we order more collection boxes and/or bags?

You will automatically be shipped a new collection kit after we receive one from you at our recycling facility. If you are getting low on collection boxes or bags, you can also submit the collection kit re-order form for additional supplies. It takes approximately 2-5 business days for you to receive new supplies.

Does every battery need a bag?

Lithium Ion (Li-Ion), Small Sealed Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb) rechargeable batteries and lithium primary batteries must be individually bagged or have their terminals covered with tape before they are shipped. Other battery types do not need to be individually bagged. If you are not sure what chemistry your battery is, then please bag it to be on the safe side.
