Battery Solutions Named New Battery Sorter for Call2Recycle, Inc.
Battery Solutions, North America’s leader in battery sorting and Call2Recycle, Inc. (Call2Recycle), North America’s first and largest consumer battery stewardship organization, announced today that they have entered into a partnership for sorting batteries. Battery Solutions has recently started receiving batteries from Call2Recycle’s collection sites across the United States.
“The single biggest opportunity to improve the efficiency of managing waste batteries is by partnering with the leader in sorting technologies,” said Carl Smith, CEO & president of Call2Recycle, Inc. “We went through an extensive evaluation process scrutinizing industry-wide proposals and selected Battery Solutions as part of our service provider network, as we share the same vision of expanding battery recycling while exceeding the highest industry standards for efficiency.”
“It is a natural step for Call2Recycle and Battery Solutions to join forces as we are both industry leading organizations,” said Thomas Bjarnemark, CEO of Battery Solutions. “We are excited to add the estimated 7 million pounds of batteries Call2Recycle anticipates collecting in 2016.”
Call2Recycle’s battery volume will add to Battery Solutions’ 40 million annual pounds of batteries collected for recycling. With a nationwide footprint and established best practices in the industry, it recently added the first and only automated battery sorting technology in North America to sort batteries by chemistry for safe and efficient recycling.
Call2Recycle and Battery Solutions processes are fully integrated and full collection containers from Call2Recycle’s collection network have already begun to be sorted by Battery Solutions’ locations in Howell, MI and Mesa, AZ.
