How to Sort Your Waste


What Do I Do With...?


Batteries (single use):

Curbside battery collection

Your single-use A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt or button cell batteries will be collected on your recycling collection day during the October 16 27 battery collection period.

Put your used household batteries in a transparent, sealable bag. On your collection day, place the filled bag on top of your closed organics cart.

If you don’t have an organics cart, place your filled battery bag beside your recycling bags.

  • Into a battery recycling barrel at participating libraries, community centres, municipal facilities and retailers throughout Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
