A Chance To Get Rid Of Your Old Car Batteries Tomorrow

Starting tomorrow you can get rid of your dead car battery in an environmentally responsible way: CAA is recycling your used batteries during Earth Week, April 16 to 22.

The public can drop off lead-acid batteries (those found in cars, trucks, campers, motorcycles, boats and small planes) at the Saint John CAA Office at 378 Westmorland Rd. during business hours. In Fredericton you can drop them off at Coast Tire & Auto Service, 749 Wilsey Rd.

Vehicle batteries are hazardous waste--so you can't put out with your normal trash.You're advised to wear gloves and safety glasses when handling batteries. Place them upright in a sturdy container and secure them so they don't tip over. Do not smoke near batteries or expose them to open flames. When you are finished handling batteries, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
