The Home Depot Canada offers rechargeable battery recycling to
customers across the country, and single-use (non-rechargeable) battery
collection in British Columbia and Ontario. Batteries should not be
disposed of in regular household waste because their toxic materials can
leach into groundwater and soil. Help the environment by bringing your
old batteries to The Home Depot to be responsibly recycled.
Single-use (non-rechargeable) battery collection is available at all Ontario and British Columbia The Home Depot Stores.
HOW Simply drop them off in the specially marked battery
recycling unit at the front of the store and walk away with a clear
conscience knowing the reusable materials will be recycled and what's
left over will be dealt with in an environmentally responsible manner.
You can recycle: All types of rechargeable batteries are accepted at
stores nation-wide. Additionally, all single-use batteries are accepted
in Ontario and British Columbia.
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.
