Spectrum Brands and its U.S. Rayovac Battery Division commend Call2Recycle, with its leading battery take-back and recycling program, for more than 20 years of environmental excellence and pledge our support for industry and legislative efforts for the first-ever model all battery recycling bill unveiled in June 2014.

All Battery Recycling Bill Press Release

In 2016, Call2Recycle attained its 21st consecutive year of record-setting collections–a notable achievement for any recycling organization. C2R collected 14 million lbs. (6.3 million kgs) of batteries, a 12 percent jump from 2015, and the most batteries and cellphones collected in any single year. C2R also set another record of 129 million lbs. (58 million kgs) in collections since 1996. That amount exceeds the weight of two fully loaded freighter ships.

In addition, Call2Recycle Canada contributed to the growth with double-digit increases in at least two of its provinces. C2R attributes their success to the tireless hard work of North American municipalities, retailers and stewards that are committed to raising consumer awareness and improving accessibility.
