Get ready for Peel's battery collection this spring!

Brampton, ON. (March 28, 2022) – This April, celebrate Earth Day and contribute to a greener Peel by reducing the number of batteries sent to landfill.

From April 11 to April 22, residents are encouraged to put their single-use and rechargeable batteries out for spring battery collection.

Thanks to Peel residents, we've collected over 140,000 kgs of batteries since the start of the program in 2016 to ensure safe and responsible recycling of used batteries.

Free curbside battery collection happens in Peel each spring and fall, providing residents with a convenient way to dispose of their batteries safely.

Instructions for the spring battery collection period:

Other tips:

As a reminder, batteries do not belong in garbage or recycling bins. Batteries mixed in with recycling can cause a fire hazard at the recycling facility. Batteries also contaminate other recyclables which must then be sent to landfill.
