Battery Recycling

There are hundreds of different types of batteries, having different requirements for sorting, handling and processing. Let us help you manage your waste batteries responsibly.

Our Recycling Facility (Brendar Environmental Recycling Inc. – "BERI") is fully licensed by the Ministry of the Environment for waste battery processing and recycling activities. The BERI Facility collects, consolidates, stores, and recycles batteries of all types and chemistries.

The BERI Facility can handle almost any battery type, including the most common varieties such as:

Alkaline - Alkaline batteries are the most common type of household battery and are used in thousands of electrical products. Alkaline batteries come in all kinds of shapes and sizes (e.g., AAA, AA, C, D) and are typically single-use or primary cells, which means they cannot be re-charged. Alkaline batteries offer consumers a relatively low cost, disposable alternative for powering their electronic devices.

Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) & Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) - NiCd and NiMH batteries are a very common rechargeable battery alternative to Alkaline batteries. Offered in almost the same variety of shapes and sizes these rechargeable batteries typically cost more upfront, but have a longer overall life span than single-use Alkaline batteries.

Lead-Acid - Lead-Acid batteries are the most common type of rechargeable battery. These extremely heavy cells can be found in two varieties "Wet" and "Sealed" lead-acid batteries. The "Wet" lead-acid batteries, most commonly used for automotive batteries, typically have accessible cells that can be refilled with acid as required. "Sealed" lead-acid batteries on the other do not have re-fillable ports. These “sealed” lead-acid batteries are most commonly used for back-up power supplies in emergency lighting, computer networks, and security systems.

Lithium - Lithium batteries are becoming more and more readily available. These rechargeable batteries typically offer a longer lasting charge then NiCd or NiNMH batteries and at a fraction of the size and weight of lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries are most often found in electrical devices that benefit from long lasting and low weight batteries such as laptop computers, cameras, and cell phones.
