Where can I recycle my car battery?

Lead-acid (car) batteries can now be recycled through an industry-led program, managed by the Canadian Battery Association (CBA). Lead-acid batteries can be dropped off at a number of participating CBA depots across the province. Contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit the RCBC Recyclepedia or the Canadian Battery Association website to find the closest drop-off location.

Many local recycling depots, landfills and transfer stations will accept car batteries free of charge for recycling. There are also several private scrap metal or battery recycling companies that accept automotive batteries. Some of these companies will pay for exhausted car batteries in larger volumes. Please handle and store car batteries with care. Call the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit the RCBC Recyclepedia to locate the nearest collection facility.
