Last fall, the City of Guelph piloted a curbside battery collection and recycling program. The city says over six-thousand pounds of batteries were diverted from the landfill.
Starting November 14th and running til the 25th single-use alkaline batteries will once again be picked up at the curb for safe disposal and recycling.
Residents will receive a battery collection bag in their Thursday, November 10th copy of the Guelph Mercury Tribune.
You’re asked to cover all 9-volt battery terminals with with tape and put used or unwanted alkaline batteries in the battery bag and seal it.
Then leave the bag on the ground beside the blue cart.
Collection bags can also be picked up at City Hall, the West End Rec Centre, the Evergreen Community Senior’s Centre, the Waste Resource Innovation Centre, and the Guelph Fire Headquarters.
