Call2Recycle Launches First Household Battery Collection & Recycling Program in BC


Call2Recycle announced last week (June 9), that British Columbians will now be able to recycle any household battery at nearly 1,500 collection locations across the province. Call2Recycle® has collected more than 143,000 kilograms of rechargeable batteries in British Columbia since 1997, and the program was recently chosen as the first government-mandated collection program for all household batteries – including alkaline – by the British Columbia Ministry of Environment.

“British Columbia is leading the way in promoting environmental stewardship by launching the first government-mandated household battery program in North America,” said John Yap, British Columbia Minister of State for Climate Action. “We fully support Call2Recycle’s efforts to recycle batteries and cell phones into new products and keep them out of our solid waste stream, which will help the environment and the economy.”
