National Battery and Cellphone Recycling Program

In partnership with Call 2 Recycle, The Home Depot Canada now offers free battery recycling to customers at all The Home Depot Canada Stores . We accept the following types of batteries:

  • Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd)
  • Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
  • Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
  • Small Seale d Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb)
  • Cellphones (without batteries)
  • Lithium Primary
  • Alkaline (AA, AAA, 9V, etc.)

Simply drop off your batteries and cellphones in the specially marked recycling boxes at the returns or services desks, and walk away knowing they will be recycled in an environmentally responsible way.

Changes to Home Depot's paint and compact fluorescent bulb and tube recycling programs

We're making changes to our paint recycling program in Ontario and Quebec, and our compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb and tube recycling programs across the country. We believe the collection and disposal of CFLs and paint can be more effectively managed through a third-party recycling program and as such, will no longer be accepting these products for recycling. But don't worry - we've got a solution. Beginning March 1, 2013, you can drop off your used paint and expired CFL bulbs at one of the many recycling locations near you.

Pick a province to find a recycling depot closest to you:
British Columbia
Nova Scotia (contact your local municipality)
Ontario: Paint; CFL's
Prince Edward Island (contact your local municipality)

Please note these are not exhaustive lists. For more information we recommend contacting your local municipality.
