Recycle! Recycle! Recycle!

Via BeSpecific, Recycle Old Cellphones and Rechargeable Batteries,

"The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC) is a non-profit, public service organization dedicated to rechargeable battery recycling. Founded by the rechargeable battery industry in 1994, RBRC’s mission is to promote the recycling of used rechargeable batteries found in many cordless electronic consumer products such as, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, cordless power tools, camcorders, and two-way radios. In pursuit of its mission, RBRC also collects old cell phones. RBRC's public education campaign and rechargeable battery and cell phone recycling program – Call2Recycle® – is the result of the industry's determination to conserve natural resources and prevent rechargeable batteries from entering the solid waste stream."


  1. Thanks for the great plug. Is your university recycling through us? If not, it's totally free, no catch. We can provide collection boxes for the library to collect rechargeable batteries and cell phones. The boxes are preaddressed and shipment prepaid. Place in outbound UPS shipments. We take care of the rest.

  2. Hi there. Thanks for noticing and thanks for approaching us. I forwarded your proposal to my supervisor. Definitely stay in touch!
