Delaware Solid Waste Authority Receives Leader in Sustainability Award

The Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) is a proud recipient of the Call2Recycle 2019 Leader in Sustainability Award. This award recognizes the top performing Call2Recycle program participants for their commitment to battery recycling. More than 7.5 million pounds of batteries were collected in the Call2Recycle program in 2019, a feat that was made possible by DSWA’s engagement in battery recycling.

“The encouragement and promotion of sustainability has been greatly intensified by the active participation of DSWA’s in the Call2Recycle Program” said Carl Smith, CEO & President of Call2Recycle, Inc. “We’re proud to recognize DSWA as a 2019 leader in sustainability.”

Collecting batteries for recycling is an easy and safe way to make a difference, one that conserves natural resources and protects the planet for future generations. All consumer batteries should be recycled once they reach their end-of-life.
