Call2Recycle Canada, Inc., Canada’s national consumer battery collection and recycling organization, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its commitment to help Canadians collect used batteries for recycling and record-breaking collections in 2016.

The organization was founded in 1997 by the battery industry long before provincial mandates to collect and recycle batteries. The industry sought to voluntarily control the amount of waste it was contributing to the waste stream through a national collection and recycling effort. Since its inception, the Call2Recycle program in Canada has collected more than 13 million kilograms of batteries for recycling.

2016 marks the program’s best year by far – a record of more than 2.7 million kilograms of household batteries were collected in Canada in 2016 – an increase of 12 percent over 2015.
