The city is collecting single-use batteries from residents for two weeks this fall.
Residents who were saving their used single-use household batteries can place them outside for curbside pick up any time from Monday, October 21 to Friday, November 1.
Since batteries are not compatible with regular garbage disposal and regular recycling, the city provides battery collection services, giving residents a convenient way to safely dispose of used batteries.
Residents should refer to the battery collection schedule to determine which days are for pick up in their location, and to receive free notification reminders.
As residents, you can make use of the following options:
- Set out your household batteries curbside for pick up after gathering them in a transparent sealable bag. On your collection day, place the bag of batteries on top of your closed organics bin. If you don’t have an organics bin, place the bag of batteries beside your recycling bin or recycling bags. Batteries set out for pick up should be single-use household batteries only of the sizes: A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9-volt and button-cell type.
- Take your household batteries to battery dropoff barrels throughout Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon.
- Drop off all other batteries to one of the Peel’s Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) year-round.
All of these services are provided free of charge.
