Batteries Dead? Recycle Instead!
· until Friday, April 21st, 2017

Collection Apr. 10th-21st, 2017
Dead batteries? You’re in luck!

*IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR 2017. READ BELOW.*

*Battery Bags are no longer being mailed to residents.* Instead, residents can now place their spent, intact, single-use household batteries into any ziplock-style bag they have and put it on top of their blue box during their regular collection day that falls between April 10th â€" 21st, 2017.

At the back of the 2017 Hazardous Waste schedule, are labels you can cut out, and place on the inside of your bag of batteries (see photo). These labels will help your driver easily see the bag, and put it in the appropriate place in the truck.

Step 1: Gather up all dead household batteries including AA, AAA, C, D, 9V*, 6V*, and button cell batteries*

Site 2: Put batteries in your own ziplock-style bag, insert the tag, seal the zipper, and place on top of your blue box on your regular collection day between April 10th-21st ONLY.

*please place a small piece of masking tape on exposed terminals of 9v, 6v, and button cells.

If you still have a battery bag from previous collection events, you can continue to use those. We also have a number of old battery bags at the recycling plant in Trenton that are free to residents to pick up.

Batteries that are collected are recycled by RMC in Port Colborne, Ontario.

This will be the 8th battery drive that Quinte has done since 2013. Residents have recycled over 60,000 lbs of dead batteries since the program started. As a running average, Quinte has the best participation rate out of 63 other municipalities that offer a curbside battery bag program!

The curbside battery bag program is open only to households that use blue boxes. Apartment buildings, businesses, and institutions that would like be a collection site, can contact us
