There are two locations to drop off batteries in Prince Albert:
Prince Albert Landfill
A public station has been set up at the Prince Albert Landfill for the collection and disposal of batteries.
SARCAN (44 North Industrial Drive)
Residents are encouraged to bring the following items to either location free of charge:
- Dry Cell Batteries - includes both single-use and rechargeable nickel cadmium, nickel hydride, alkaline, lithium ion, mercury silver oxide and metal button batteries.
- Wet Cell Lead Acid Batteries - includes only vehicle batteries.
City Hall (1084 Central Avenue)
AA, AAA and D batteries are collected at the Public Works office on the third floor.
This is an opportunity for the City to keep batteries from entering the landfill and is a long-term benefit to the City as it reduces the quantity of leachable heavy metals that could result in a negative environmental impact.
**Both SARCAN Prince Albert Locations (44 North Industrial Drive and 4340 5th Avenue East) can take end-of-life electronic products. For a list of accepted products please refer to https://www.recyclemyelectronics.ca/sk.
