RadioShack Keeps it Clean and Green

Leading the Charge to Recycle Rechargeable Batteries

As more and more electronics rely on rechargeable batteries, the need to properly disposal of these batteries grows. By properly recycling rechargeable batteries for reuse, you can help to conserve natural resources and reduce the impact on landfills.

RadioShack is at the forefront of the rechargeable battery recycling cause. As the first national retailer to partner with Call2Recycle, RadioShack has collected more than 7 million pounds of rechargeable batteries since 1994, more than any other retailer. Through our partnership with Call2Recycle, consumers can drop off their used rechargeable batteries at thousands of convenient RadioShack locations in the contiguous United States at no cost.

Not sure what qualifies? Many common household items use rechargeable batteries, including laptops, cellphones, cordless phones, digital cameras and camcorders, remote control toys, and two-way radios. And, if it's rechargeable, you can recycle it, including batteries with the following chemistries: Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Li-ion, Ni-Zn, and Pb, weighing up to 11lbs/5kg per battery. Call2Recycle does not accept alkaline, non-rechargeable lithium or wet-cell batteries.

Recycle Your Old cellphone at RadioShack

Just as tossing your used rechargeable batteries in the nearest garbage bin could pose a hazard to the environment, your old cellphones should also be properly recycled or disposed of in order to help preserve the integrity of our landfills and conserve our natural resources. RadioShack accepts any and all wireless phones for recycling — regardless of their condition and with or without their chargers — at all of our company-operated locations in the continental United States. Phones collected through the RBRC's Call2Recycle program will be refurbished and resold when possible or responsibly recycled for materials otherwise.
