Battery Recycling

Battery recycling is extremely important to the environment and to our industry. These products are considered dangerous goods and have a dark history of ending up in oceans, waterways, and landfills. So, we make sure we do everything we can to educate our customers that Canadian Energy is the ideal place to dispose of lead acid batteries safely and properly. These batteries are worth the time to bring into a regulated battery recycling facility like any Canadian Energy branch across the country. Not only does it put a little extra cash in your pocket, but more importantly, it ensures we strive to leave this planet better than we found it.

WHERE CAN I RECYCLE MY BATTERIES?
Simply return your battery (regardless of brand or type) to any of our 20 branches or network of our thousands of dealers across Canada. Find a battery recycling location near you here.

WE'RE PARTNERING WITH THE BEST.
Our commitment to recycling includes two strategic partnerships with organizations that encourage, inform and empower consumers to recycle their batteries. We're proud to work alongside The Battery Council International and the Canadian Battery Association, both of whom are instrumental in helping us create much needed awareness.

HOW DOES BATTERY RECYCLING WORK?
If you're curious about how to recycle batteries, the best place to start is by visiting our YouTube channel and viewing BCI’s video on battery recycling. There you'll find a video of helpful information, including answers to the most frequently asked questions about the safe disposal of batteries.

BUT DOES RECYCLING REALLY WORK?
Great question. Since its inception in 1987, Canadian Energy has recycled over 100 million pounds of used batteries. We think that proves it does!

WHAT TYPES OF BATTERIES CAN I RECYCLE? 
You can bring any type of lead acid battery to us for recycling. So that means you can recycle car/automtoive batteries, RV batteries, marine batteries & much more.
