Residents are encouraged to drop off their single-use dry cell batteries in designated barrels at facilities within the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon. All batteries are sorted by type (alkaline, zinc/carbon etc.) and then recycled for their respective elements (metal, zinc, manganese, etc.). All standard single-use dry cell batteries are accepted, including A, AA, AAA, AAAA, C cell, D cell, 4.5-volt and 9-volt. Rechargeable batteries are not currently accepted, but can be dropped off at your nearest Community Recycling Centre.
