Recycling Used Batteries 

North Peace Regional landfill would like to encourage everyone to recycle old batteries:

Batteries, we all find them very useful in powering many electronic devices that we have in our homes or that we carry with us and use from day to day.
Whether it be the small “button” batteries that power our wristwatches or a hearing aid or the alkaline and nickel (1.5 – 9 v) batteries that we use in flashlights, toys to cameras or the lithium ion (Li) batteries that power our cell pho
nes and so many gardening/yard tools, all batteries have a life span and reach a point where they will no longer run our device or if they are the rechargeable type, even hold a charge. At this point, many of us just chuck the old, used battery into the garbage and buy a replacement.
But did you realize that these used batteries are recyclable and can be re-manufactured into many useful products? Alkaline batteries are recycled into steel, sunscreen and concrete aggregate. Nickel batteries (Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, Ni-Zn) are recycled into silverware, pots & pans and new batteries. Lithium ion (Li-Ion) and lithium primary are recycled into steel, stainless steel, silverware and new batteries.
Also these “dead” batteries are never completely drained of their energy and lithium batteries in particular, when broken or damaged in the garbage, can cause a fire that if not discovered in time can be become very difficult and expensive to extinguish.
As a consumer of these products please do not just throw them in the garbage but place a piece of tape across the exposed terminals and then place the batteries in a plastic container. When your container is near full, bring it into B&E Hardware in Hines Creek, or in Fairview place it on the rack inside the door at Freson Bros., or bring it into the North Peace Regional Landfill and we will package the batteries up to be shipped off for recycling with Call2Recycle.

Thank you,

Dennis Lang
Manager – North Peace Regional Landfill
