Recycling Rechargeable Batteries
No Cost for Communities to Recycle
All Rechargeable Batteries
The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) is a non-profit, public service
organization dedicated to recycling rechargeable batteries and cell phones across North America through its Call2Recycle program.
Through the no-cost program, RBRC handles the collection of all portable rechargeable batteries, including
Nickel-Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-lon), Nickel-Zinc (Ni-Zn) and Small Sealed Lead (Pb)*
rechargeable batteries. RBRC will provide automatic replenishment of supplies, such as recycling boxes and
collateral materials, to community recycling centres. In addition to saving money, municipal recycling coordinators
will also enjoy the benefit of fewer administrative tasks such as purchase orders, reimbursements and cheque
requests that are typically associated with processing payment.
You can set up your own collection, or take your batteries to one of over 30,000 already established sites!
Rechargeable batteries are found in a wide range of portable electronic products, including cellular and cordless
phones, camcorders, laptop computers and cordless power tools. Householders can find the nearest rechargeable
battery drop-off location by calling 1-800-8-BATTERY or by going online at www.call2recycle.org.
