U.S. Forest Service Partners with Call2Recycle

The U.S. Forest Service (USFS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the largest forestry research organization in the world, has partnered with Call2Recycle®, a rechargeable battery and cell phone recycling solution, to provide all units and by extension their local communities a convenient way to recycle rechargeable batteries.

Call2Recycle collection boxes will be located in approximately 500 USFS offices, allowing staff and local community members to reduce their environmental footprint by properly disposing of their used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones.

"Partnering with Call2Recycle is a natural alignment, as both our organizations are committed to improving sustainable operations and protecting the environment," said Susan Alden Weingardt, Partnership coordinator, USFS, Rocky Mountain Region. "We can always be doing more to lessen our environmental impact; Call2Recycle will help strengthen our environmental efforts at a grassroots level. Our mission has always been to care for the land and serve the community, and this partnership is an extension of that mission."

USFS was established in 1905 to provide technical and financial assistance to state and private forestry agencies. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., USFS operates throughout nine geographical regions of the U.S. and manages public lands in national forests and grasslands, encompassing 193 million acres.
