Save those batteries

batteriesDurham residents, hold on to your batteries – the next curbside battery collection is coming soon.

To coincide with the promotion by local fire departments to change smoke alarm batteries, the Region of Durham will be collecting batteries on the week of April 18 from all those who currently receive curbside recycling pickup.

In the time being, residents are asked to store batteries in a cool, dry location away from any flammable material prior to disposal, and should not be in contact with any conductive materials.
