Residents are encouraged to place used batteries at the curb for special collection during the week of November 6 – 10. Residents can set out spent household batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, 9V, button batteries, etc.) in a sealed clear plastic bag, such as a Ziploc bag, and place it on top of their recycling box for paper. They will be picked up on your regular collection day and sent for recycling.
Residents are also encouraged to replace batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms when you change your clocks back on Sunday, November 5.
The curbside battery collection program does not include businesses and apartments that set out large roll-out carts. A year-round recycling option for batteries includes dropping them off at Orillia’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot located at the Waste Diversion Site, 100 Kitchener St.
