CALL2RECYCLE: THE HOME DEPOT RECYCLES ONE MILLION POUNDS OF RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES

February 23, 2017

Through its partnership with Call2Recycle®, a nonprofit battery stewardship program, The Home Depot recycled more than a million pounds of rechargeable batteries in 2016, becoming the first Call2Recycle retail participant in North America to achieve this accomplishment.

The Home Depot began offering in-store rechargeable battery collection as a Call2Recycle partner in 2001. Today, stores in nearly 50 states offer this program to customers.

At any designated drop-off location, customers can recycle all used portable rechargeable batteries – those batteries commonly found in traditional household items. Rechargeable batteries can be found in cordless power tools, cell and cordless phones, laptops, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders, remote control toys and other portable electronics. Any rechargeable battery or cellphone that weighs up to 11 pounds is accepted.
