Call2Recycle Battery Collection Program
SPEC is no longer running a battery collection program out of our office. In the past local residents would drop off their used batteries at the SPEC building and then pay a nominal fee to have SPEC recycle them with a private recycling company.
You can now drop off your batteries free of charge at one of over 1,200 retailers, municipalities, businesses, and public agencies in the Call2Recycle network.

This is a result of 2010 legislation which established the first government-mandated consumer battery collection and recycling program in North America.
