The Great Battery Roundup Is Underway

Now's your chance to safely get rid of those old batteries from cars, trucks, campers, motorcycles and boats you have hanging around. 

Gary Howard of the Canadian Automobile Association tells CHSJ News for the next week until the 21st, you can drop them off at Coast Tire. 

Almost everything in a battery can be recycled and 60 to 80 per cent of new batteries are made up of reclaimed materials.

Howard warns if batteries are dumped in landfills, their caustic materials can contaminate soil and groundwater.
