Are your batteries running out of power? Don’t throw them in the garbage! And don’t recycle them in your blue bin either.
They need to be set aside for a special recycling!
At School, you can drop them off in room 215. We’ll make sure they get to the right place.
At home, save them in a bag or container, then drop them off at one of Toronto's Drop Off Depots. The Depot closest to Jackman is at 400 Commissioners St. (open Monday - Friday 6am - 6pm). They'll take batteries and other household hazardous waste and your electronic waste too.
Batteries recycling can also be found at participating Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Best Buy, The Source, and Staples stores. You can also take batteries to Evergreen Brickworks! Given there are so many drop off locations for recycling, there's no excuse for not recycling batteries.
P.S. Have you considered investing in rechargeable batteries?
