Spring Household Battery Collection

Household Battery Collection returns from April 9th to 20th 2018.

Residents are able to put AA, AAA, C, D, 9V, 6V, and button cell batteries in a clear, resealable bag on top of their sorted blue box on collection day.

Please put your bag of batteries on top of your fibers blue box so it is easily identifiable to the recycling truck driver. 100% of the batteries collected are recycled by RMC, the Raw Materials Company located in Port Colborne Ontario.

Together, we have diverted over 65,000 lbs of batteries from the landfill since the beginning of the program in Quinte back in 2013. Battery recycling is important because of the negative impact of battery chemicals on our environment.

For more information, head to quinterecycling.org or call 613 394 6266.
