The first U.S. industry-wide, voluntary e-bike battery recycling program

More than 12 million electric bicycles (e-bikes) are estimated to be sold in the United States between 2020 and 2030. That’s 12 million batteries used to power those e-bikes that will need to be safely and responsibly collected and recycled at their end-of-life.

To ensure those batteries are safely and responsibly handled and kept out of landfills, more than 40 bike industry leaders from 20 PeopleForBikes member companies united under a sustainability task force and electric bicycle committee to design an industry-leading e-bike battery recycling program in collaboration with Call2Recycle.

One day, your e-bike battery will reach its end of life. When that time comes, that battery needs to be specially handled to keep the environment, people, and property safe. It should not be put in a trash or recycling bin.

Through this industry-supported program, you can ensure your batteries are safely and responsibly recycled.
