Where to drop your batteries

  • The Household Hazardous Waste Depot accepts both single-use and rechargeable batteries from April through November on Thursdays and Saturdays. - The seasonal opening of the depot will be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Residents may also drop off used single-use and rechargeable batteries at these locations for recycling:

Fall collection of single-use batteries

The City collects single-use batteries once a year in the fall around Remembrance Day. The 2019 battery collection is scheduled for November 4-9.

How to put out batteries so they are picked up on your collection week

Place your single-use batteries in a zipper-style plastic bag (see through) beside your recycling box.

9V batteries should be taped to prevent accidental discharge. Batteries exceeding a standard D-Cell battery in size are not acceptable in the program.

Please do not place the battery bags inside your blue or grey box.

Special battery disposal bags are available at select locations, including:

  • Kingston Area Recycling Centre
