The Home Depot Supports Environmental Conservation

The Home Depot Supports Environmental Conservation Through Rechargeable Battery & Cell Phone Recycling
Home Depot Eco Options Logo

The Home Depot has always provided cordless power tools and other products that help make your home improvement projects a success. When a power tool battery can no longer hold its charge, it’s time to recycle it. The Home Depot is part of a national program called Call2Recycle® - a free, in-store recycling program that offers customers convenient access to recycling rechargeable batteries and cell phones.

How Does the Call2Recycle Program Work?

Recycling rechargeable batteries and cell phones is an easy way to protect our environment and conserve Earth’s natural resources. Home Depot stores display Call2Recycle collection kits for rechargeable batteries. Batteries are then shipped to a facility that melts the batteries and uses the metals to make new products. Visit call2recycle.org to find a Home Depot recycling location.

Batteries We Accept
Rechargeable batteries can be found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptops, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders, remote control toys and other portable electronics. Any rechargeable battery or cell phone that weighs up to 11 lbs will be accepted.

Recycling at Your Convenience
Recycling batteries and cell phones is easy – just bag it, tie it and drop it! You can find the Call2Recycle collection kit at any Home Depot location, where you can place your battery into a provided plastic bag and drop it into our box.

Did You Know?
The Home Depot has recycled 1.8 million pounds of batteries and more than 5,000 cell phones since joining the Call2Recycle® program in 2001. That's equivalent to keeping the weight of 180 school buses out of community landfills!
