2023 – YNCU has joined thousands of other companies and retailers across the province helping people get rid of their unwanted batteries. Community members don’t need to be members to take advantage of the program–battery recycling is available to everyone. Ontario residents looking to get rid of used or unwanted batteries can now drop them off at YNCU branches free of charge. Batteries dropped off at YNCU locations will be shipped to Raw Materials Company in Port Colborne, Ont. for sorting and processing. Raw Materials Company separates single-use batteries into metals, minerals, plastics and paper. The entire battery is recovered and reused, keeping all materials from the landfill. Anyone needing to recycle single-use batteries can visit a YNCU branch and drop the batteries into a marked bin. Click here to see a full list of YNCU locations.
