Rechargeable battery recycling and cell phone recycling can be done at your nearest Home Depot store. Gather up your old batteries and dead cell phones and take them to your favorite Home Depot store for convenient and eco-friendly disposal and recycling!
Since 2001, The Home Depot has collaborated with Call2Recycle/RBRC to provide consumers a convenient way to properly recycle their rechargeable batteries and cell phones for free. Since we’ve launched this recycling program, over 2.4 million lbs. of batteries and cell phones have been recycled since 2001- that’s equivalent to the weight of 240 school buses!
Call2Recycle/RBRC is a non-profit recycling organization funded by members of the rechargeable battery and portable electronic product industry.
How You Can Participate:
You can conveniently recycle your expired (non-leaking) rechargeable batteries and cell phones for free via the recycling fixture located near the returns desk of any participating Home Depot store*.
Simply bag the expired rechargeable battery or cell phone with provided bags and place in the recycling fixture. Bagging the batteries helps protect against battery ends touching and ensures safe shipment to the recycler.
Rechargeable batteries and cell phones are then sent to a Call2Recycle partner for recycling.
Earth Day is on April 22, so add this to your list of things you can do to celebrate Earth Day!* Currently excludes AK, VI, PR and Guam stores.
