Brampton - The City of Brampton is making it easier for residents to recycle their used batteries. 

The City, in association with the Region of Peel, has launched a free battery recycling program.  Residents are invited to drop off single-use batteries in designated barrels at selected recreation centres and other municipal facilities located around the city.  

All batteries will be sorted by type (alkaline, lithium, etc.) and then recycled for their respective elements (metal, zinc, manganese, etc.). All standard single-use batteries are accepted, including AA, D, 9V, button cell, and so on. Rechargeable batteries and cell phones are not currently accepted.

Batteries contain heavy metals and other toxic chemicals, which means they have traditionally been handled as toxic waste. Recycling these materials allows them to be reused or disposed of properly, which keeps them out of landfill. This exciting new program is part of the City’s ongoing commitment to help protect and preserve our environment.

For safety purposes, please place leaking batteries in a sealed plastic bag and cover the terminals of lithium batteries with tape before dropping them off in the bins.

For a list of battery drop-off locations, visit www.brampton.ca
