Contribute to a greener Peel with fall curbside battery pickup

Brampton, ON (September 28, 2021) – During the fall battery collection period, which runs from October 18 to 28, 2021, residents can put all single-use and rechargeable batteries out for collection. This collection service provides residents a convenient way to ensure that their batteries are disposed of safely.

Don’t have batteries saved up for this collection period? It’s never too late to start! Since 2016, Peel Region has offered curbside battery collection every spring and fall. Designate a container for battery storage in your home today and start saving toward the next Peel battery collection period.

What to do for this fall battery collection period:

Other tips:

As a reminder, batteries do not belong in garbage or recycling bins. If mixed with recycling, batteries can cause a fire hazard at the recycling facility. It also contaminates other recyclables and eventually ends up in the landfill.

Thanks to your efforts, we have recycled 125 tonnes of batteries since 2016 – which is huge, since a single tonne of weight is equal to 2,000 pounds! This is bringing us steps closer to achieving our mandate of diverting 75% of Peel’s waste from landfill by 2034 and moving toward a healthier and greener community for everyone.
