THUNDER BAY – As a result of the 2019 Budget process, the curbside battery collection program has been cancelled going forward.

“This program proved to be very successful,” said Jason Sherband, Manager – Solid Waste and Recycling Services. “We encourage residents to continue with the momentum and recycle their spent batteries. It is important to keep the batteries from going to the landfill, as batteries can release potentially toxic materials.”

Residents are encouraged to drop off single-use household batteries throughout the year, free of charge, at the following City facilities:

  • Household Hazardous Waste Depot, Solid Waste & Recycling Facility 5405 Mapleward Rd
  • Victoriaville Civic Centre, 111 Syndicate Ave S (next to the Cashiers, during regular office hours)
  • Brodie Resource Library, 216 Brodie St
  • County Park Library, 1020 Dawson Rd, County Fair Plaza
  • Mary J. L. Black Library, 901 Edward St S
  • Waverley Resource Library, 285 Red River Rd
  • EcoSuperior, 562 Red River Rd
  • Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre, 700 River St
