Peel offers curbside battery collection this fall
Brampton, ON (Oct. 7, 2019) – Residents who are saving their single-use household batteries, can place these out for curbside collection which runs from October 21 - November 1, 2019. Residents are encouraged to check their collection calendar at peelregion.ca/waste to find out their battery collection day or to sign up to receive free waste notification reminders.
This collection service provides residents a convenient way to ensure that their batteries are disposed of safely.
- Set out only single-use A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt and button cell household batteries in a transparent, sealable bag. On your recycling collection day, place the bag of batteries on top of your closed organics cart. If you don't have an organics cart, place your bag of batteries beside your recycling bags.
- Take household batteries to battery drop-off barrels throughout Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
- Drop off all other batteries to one of Peel’s Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) year-round free of charge.
Find peelregion.ca/waste to find a CRC or drop-off barrel near you.
Thanks to your efforts, we have recycled 67 tonnes of batteries since 2016, helping Peel get closer to its target of 75% waste diversion by 2034.
