Curbside battery collection will take place next week in Durham Region. Used or unwanted batteries can be set out with recycling on regular pick up days during the week of November 6th. The Region reminds residents that batteries should not be disposed of with regular garbage, as they can contain mercury, cadmium, and other heavy metals that can harm the environment. Up to 92% of battery components are recyclable and recoverable. You can get more information on storing and preparing batteries for recycling at www.durham.ca/battery
