Battery collection is the week of November 7th. Watch for your battery bags in the mail this October. Place your single-use batteries ( AAA, AA, A, C, D, 9-volt and button batteries) in battery bags or in Ziploc bags. Place sealed bags on top of your cart by 7am on your regular collection day.

Rechargeable batteries, cell phone and laptop batteries, car, industrial and battery packs are NOT accepted in the program but may be taken to any County of Simcoe household hazardous waste facility for safe, free disposal.
Last year the County of Simcoe collected over 45.6 MT of batteries. Collected batteries are consolidated and sent for processing to an Ontario company that separates the various components of the batteries, with approximately 90 per cent of the battery components being recycled. Batteries contain harmful substances and should be kept out of the garbage and landfills along with other hazardous materials
