Recycle your old batteries through roadside collection
In Headwaters, Dufferin County and the towns of Caledon and Erin all have battery recycling programs. Erin and Dufferin offer roadside collection during specified program weeks. All three municipalities provide multiple drop-off locations at community buildings and local retailers, and host regular Household Hazardous Waste drop-off days. Erin has a mobile hazardous waste unit which rotates monthly through county facilities. See your municipal website for the list of battery drop off locations and dates for HHW days.
