What is an Industry Steward or a Member?

Industry stewards are the producers, importers and brand owners of batteries and products that contain batteries who fund the Call2Recycle program to ensure that the batteries they are introducing into the marketplace are responsibly recycled when they reach their end of life.

Members are obligated producers, brand holders, first importers or retailers of  single-use and rechargeable batteries that are participating in a provincially-regulated program to recover and reclaim end-of-life household batteries. The regulations can vary from province to province, but members chose to participate in the Call2Recycle program in order to easily comply with the local regulations.

These members pay an environmental handling fee to Call2Recycle for the safe and responsible collection and recycling of their batteries.
