Battery Recycling At Your Front Door!
Participate in the Call2Recycle Repentigny At-Home Used Battery Collection Program.
Don’t throw out your batteries—recycle them! Improper battery disposal can hurt wildlife and the environment, and put your family at risk too.
Recycling your batteries helps protect your community and wildlife from materials that may harm the environment if they end up in landfills. Also, metals reclaimed from recycled batteries can be used to make new products which helps in the development of a circular economy for a more sustainable future.
To help you and your community recycle your used household batteries, Call2Recycle is introducing a limited-time test program where we will collect your used batteries right from your front door. We’re excited for you to participate in the Call2Recycle the Repentigny neighbourhood at-home battery recycling test program!
How to Participate:
Once you receive your battery recycling kit in the mail, simply collect single-use and rechargeable batteries and leave them by your front door in the provided bags for pickup on June 19. Your batteries will be picked up on June 19, 20 or 21 and safely transported for recycling.
If you are unable to leave your batteries for pickup on the dates listed or don’t have any old batteries right now, please visit www.call2recycle.ca/locator to find your nearest battery drop-off location. You can find a Call2Recycle battery collection box at many leading hardware, home improvement, office supplies, electronics and drugstore retailers and at municipal depots.
Follow these simple instructions for battery recycling and Call2Recycle will pick them up from your front door.
Collect any used household batteries* in your house, office, garage, drawers and in old electronics such as toys, remote controls, game consoles, cordless power tools and more.
For safe handling, we recommend you tape the ends of your used batteries before you drop them in the bag to prevent batteries from touching and possibly causing a spark.
Drop the batteries into your battery collection bag and leave the sealed bag outside your front door on June 19.
*The Call2Recycle accepts single-use batteries like AA, AAA, 9V, D, C and others, as well as rechargeable batteries often found in portable devices like cellphones, laptop computers, and old power tools. Please no car batteries or batteries weighing over 5 kg each.
Once your batteries are picked up for recycling, they are sorted at a facility and sent for processing where metals are reclaimed for use in new products, including batteries, watches, golf clubs and small appliances.
What is Call2Recycle:
Call2Recycle is your provincially regulated, not-for-profit battery recycling program dedicated to the safe collection and recycling of used batteries.
We Want your Feedback!
Your feedback about this pilot program will help develop new at-home battery programs for other communities. Once your batteries have been picked up, please click here (available soon) before June 28 to complete a brief survey and we’ll send you a $5 gift card to thank you!
