Although the residents of Kent and Harrison have responded very well to the idea of taking their batteries to the drop off point in Shoppers Drug Mart there is a problem.
A few people are dropping off small lead-acid batteries as well alkaline and/or button batteries.
Unfortunately we can only accept the alkaline and/or button batteries.
Lead/acid batteries have to be returned to a place of purchase, usually a place that deals with autos, lawn mowers, motorcycles and the like. We cannot accept even the small ones that might be used in a lawn mower or motorcycle.
The whole program of battery recycling could be in doubt if we have lead-acid batteries mixed in with the others. So, please, separate out your batteries.
