Sort your dead batteries

Taking the time to sort batteries before recycling will ensure program availability in Agassiz

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.

Thank you.
