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.
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.
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.
