PWR is a proud member of the first industrywide e-bike battery recycling program, administered by Call2Recycle, the largest, most reliable battery recycling program in the U.S., and endorsed by People For Bikes, a national bicycling advocacy organization and the bicycle industry’s trade association. PWR has united with more than 40 bike industry leaders to voluntarily support this first of its kind, nationwide initiative to ensure batteries are safely and responsibly managed at their end-of-life.
About the Program
PeopleForBikes: a national bicycling advocacy organization and the bicycle industry’s trade association with knowledge of the e-bike industry and bike policy at all levels of government.
Call2Recycle: a not-for-profit, turnkey battery management leader with extensive experience in safe battery collection, logistics, and responsible recycling.
More than 40 bike industry leaders from 20 People For Bikes member companies united under a sustainability task force and electric bicycle committee to collaborate with Call2Recycle to establish the first, voluntary industrywide electric bicycle battery recycling program in the U.S.
The e-bike battery recycling program represents the first transportation sector united under one battery recycling solution.
With industry analysts estimating more than 12 million electric bicycles will be sold in the United States between 2020 and 2030, the program will ensure that the lithium ion batteries are safely handled and returned to the proper recycling stream at their end-of-life rather than ending up in landfills.
