Call2Recycle®, Inc., North America’s largest consumer battery stewardship and recycling organization, launched a new, expanded all battery service that provides one-stop battery collection and recycling for both rechargeable and single use (AA, AAA, 9v, D-cell and button cell) batteries under 11 lbs. throughout the U.S.
As Americans head to their favorite public park, beach or playground this spring, many will find new recycling bins helping keep those treasured spaces clean thanks in part to a significant grant by Dr Pepper Snapple Group in partnership with national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful.
The Home Depot has recycled more than one million pounds of rechargeable batteries in 2016 through its in-store takeback program, in partnership with Call2Recycle. The Home Depot is Call2Recycle’s first North American retail partner to achieve this milestone in a single year.
The King County Solid Waste Division saw a 41 percent increase in recycling volumes at its transfer facilities and drop boxes in 2016 over 2015.
Recyclebank, the incentives and education platform focused on waste, disclosed that 44 schools from Recyclebank’s partnering communities successfully raised a total of $90,670 as part of the annual Recyclebank Green Schools Program.
Keep America Beautiful officially launched the 2017 Great American Cleanup.
