What can I do with exhausted rechargeable batteries?

All household batteries can be recycled through the North America-wide Call2Recycle program, funded by members of the battery and portable electronic product industry. Each battery must be no greater than 5 kg (11 lbs) in weight to be accepted. The program includes all rechargeable batteries, including nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium Ion (Li-ion) and Small Sealed Lead (Pb) chemistries.

Once your rechargeable batteries no longer keep their charge, you can take them to any of the participating depots. For drop-off locations in your neighbourhood, contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline or search by postal code on the Call2Recycle website.
