Important change coming to waste collection this month in Mississauga
If you’ve got unwanted batteries, now’s the time to gather them up and get rid of them.
From April 12 to 23, Mississauga and Brampton residents can put out all of their single-use and rechargeable batteries on the curb and get them picked up.
This battery collection period happens every year in the spring and fall.
“Thanks to your efforts, we have recycled 104.2 tonnes of batteries since 2016, helping Peel get closer to its target of 75% waste diversion by 2034,” said Peel.
Batteries must weigh less than five kilograms (11 pounds) and should be placed in a bag on top of your closed green bin (or beside your recycling bags if you don’t have a green bin).
Sealed lead acid and car batteries aren’t accepted at the curb, but can be taken to a Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC) for safe disposal.
Batteries can also be dropped off at a Peel CRC year round at no cost.
Residents can check peelregion.ca/waste to find their pickup day or get more information.
