You already recycle your paper, plastics & metals. We’ve made it easy to add batteries to your recycling list!

Batteries can and should be recycled. Here’s why:

  • Battery recycling keeps harmful materials out of landfill Used batteries that end up in your community’s landfill can contain toxic materials that may harm wildlife and the environment.
  • Battery recycling helps keep people and property safe Responsible battery recycling practices ensure batteries are handled in a way that reduces potential fire hazards.
  • Battery recycling supports sustainability Materials reclaimed from recycled batteries can be used to make new products

Battery recycling with Call2Recycle is easy. Here’s how:

1. BAG

Put each battery in a clear, sealable bag*. (available at collection boxes)


Seal the bag for safe battery management & transportation.
