A great addition to any successful recycling program!
Battery waste is generated in small quantities by everyone. The average household produces up to 3 lbs of used batteries each year. Property management companies with 100 or more buildings could easily be disposing of 3,000 lbs of batteries per year.
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!
Launching a battery recycling program has never been easier in Ontario. Primary batteries are a designated waste and require special end of life management. This program is funded by the battery manufacturers and no cost will be incurred by you to collect MHSW Approved Batteries.
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
- Information meetings
- Training sessions and extracurricular events
- Door hangers

Did you know?
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.
