18 Mar: Recycling Batteries is Responsible, and Easy to do at Best Buy

It’s easy to overlook those dead batteries hidden in a drawer or to toss them out with the household garbage. But they carry big weight when it comes to responsible recycling these days.

Consider this: In 2015 alone, Call2Recycle Inc., North America’s largest consumer battery stewardship organization and a Best Buy recycling partner, achieved a record-breaking 12.6-million pounds of batteries collected from thousands of drop-off locations across the United States. The organization estimates that’s a fraction of what could be collected if more people knew about battery recycling options.
