Batteries

Correct battery disposal is important to the safety of us all. Even if they appear ‘dead’, they can hold a small charge that could start a fire.  This fire could start in your garbage can, on the garbage truck or vehicle, or in the landfill.  We have partnered with Call2Recycle© to offer a number of locations where you can safely recycle your batteries.

Locations include:

  • Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill
  • Mackenzie Regional Transfer Station
  • McBride Regional Transfer Station
  • Quinn Street Regional Recycling Depot
  • Valemount Regional Transfer Station
  • Vanway Regional Recycling Depot and Transfer Station  

There are also private recycling depot locations and retailers that offer battery recycling with Call2Recycle©.
