Battery waste is accumulated in small quantities by everyone. The average household uses about 3 lbs of batteries every year. Property management companies with 100 or more buildings could easily be disposing thousands of pounds every year.

Engaged Tenants

RMC is looking to place battery recycling containers in buildings where tenants are highly engaged in the recycling process. If you want to provide your tenants with additional opportunities to recycle their waste conveniently, contact us today!

Ontario Based Clients

Raw Materials Company is a registered battery hauler and processor with the Resource Productivity & Recovery Authority (RPRA) under Ontario Regulation 30/20. 

Battery Types Accepted

Our Apartment Battery Recycling program accepts a variety of battery types.


The most successful apartment recycling programs all have one thing in common, engaged residents. Engaging your tenants can be challenging considering the high turnover rate in multi-residential buildings.

The best way to get your tenants involved is through effective communication. Sustained messaging and encouragement throughout the year will help make your recycling program routine.

Consider these methods of promotion for your tenants:

  • Posters in the lobby
  • Newsletters, brochures and flyers
  • Training sessions and extracurricular events
  • Surveys
  • Door hangers

Roll out your new recycling program with a simple strategy and a collection of posters found here.

For your convenience, here is a summary of important links related to this page.

Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.

As a result of RMC's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
