Changes to the Batteries Program
In February 2020, the Ministry approved the regulation for the end-of-life management of batteries. These rules are in effect as of July 1, 2020. There is no obligation for municipal governments to operate a program.

Municipalities that are interested in continuing to provide collection services begin contacting the Producer Responsibility Organizations who will ultimately be responsible for collecting these batteries to determine if mutually agreeable commercial terms be reached.
