Call2Recycle: Millions of Pounds of Rechargeable Batteries Recycled

February 18, 2020

As rechargeable batteries continue to evolve and power everything from cell phones to outdoor power equipment, it’s easier than ever to cut the cord and upgrade. But even rechargeable batteries don’t last forever.  

Call2Recycle® is a nonprofit battery stewardship program that’s worked with The Home Depot since 2001 to offer in-store rechargeable battery collection. As a U.S. retail partner, The Home Depot has helped recycle millions of pounds of rechargeable batteries.  

At any designated drop-off location, customers can recycle used portable rechargeable batteries. This includes batteries commonly found in traditional household items, like: 

  • Cordless Power Tools
  • Cell and Cordless Phones
  • Digital Cameras
  • Two-Way Radios
  • Remote Control Toys
  • Camcorders
  • Laptops
  • Other Portable Electronics
     

Any rechargeable battery or cellphone that weighs up to 11 pounds is accepted. 

The Home Depot stores in nearly every state offer this program to customers. To a find a drop off location near you, visit: http://www.call2recycle.org/locator/
