Recycling Rechargeable Batteries

Written by I.R.C.. Posted in Hazardous Materials

The IRC and the four member municipalities are proud to announce their participation in the Call2recycle program. Call2recycle is a program of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) promoting environmental sustainability by providing free battery and cell phone recycling in North America.  In the call2recycle program residents can now recycle all rechargeable batteries weighing less than 11 pounds.

What does that mean you might ask?  It means that those rechargeable batteries that you put in your camera, toys, and other gadgets around your house are now recyclable at your local municipal building.  Are you buying some new power tools, the rechargeable battery on the old tool is recyclable too!  Time to upgrade for a new cell phone, you can recycle the entire old phone at your municipal building.  Cordless phones, laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, and even remote control toys.  If it can be recharged, it can be recycled! If you are a business that would like to participate, please email Katrina Pope.call2recycle

Bring it! Bag it! Seal it! and Drop it!

  • It doesn't matter how many batteries you recycle.
  • However, be sure to place only one battery per bag!
  • Be certain to seal the bag after placing the battery inside.
  • Deposit the sealed bag into the call2recycle box.

Thanks for helping us to recharge the planet by recycling your batteries!
