Founded in 1994, Call2Recycle collect and recycle handheld rechargeable batteries and mobile phones in the US. They have also started collecting primary batteries in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Manitoba and Quebec. Collection boxes are located in retail stores, public facilities and businesses. Individual rechargeable batteries must be placed in a plastic bag and sealed. Call2Recycle is funded by product manufacturers (called licensees or ‘industry stewards’), who place the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) recycling seal on their rechargeable products and batteries, informing users that they are recyclable. There are approximately 30,000 drop-off locations in North America.

Call2Recycle is the only no cost rechargeable battery and cellphone collection program in North America. Since 1996, Call2Recycle has diverted over 100 million pounds (45 million kilograms) of batteries from the solid waste stream and established a network of 30,000 collection sites throughout the U.S. and Canada. Advancing green business practices and environmental sustainability, Call2Recycle is the most active voice promoting eco-safe reclamation and recycling of rechargeable batteries and cellphones. It is the first program of its kind to receive the Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2) certification, as well as e-Steward recognition from the Basel Action Network (BAN).  Founded in 1994, Call2Recycle is operated by the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), a non-profit organization funded by product manufacturers across the globe committed to environmentally-sound recycling of rechargeable batteries and cellphones. These manufacturers place the RBRC recycling seal on their rechargeable products and batteries, informing users that they are recyclable.

CEO and President Carl Smith serves as Treasurer of the GlobalPSC.
