E-Mobility batteries

Electric bicycles (e-bikes) and scooters (e-scooters) are becoming more popular all the time, but at end of life, e-mobility batteries need to be disposed of properly.

Batteries for e-mobility devices can be dropped off at select locations. E-bike retailers often offer e-bike battery recycling as well.

Use our locator tool and select “E-Mobility Batteries” under the search filter to find a location near you.

Environmental impact

Household battery recycling is increasingly recognized as a crucial part of Canada’s net-zero transition and plays a key role in reducing potentially hazardous waste and protecting the environment.

Recycling batteries is essential, as the chemical and metal components may harm the environment if they’re thrown away and end up in landfills.

By properly recycling household batteries, Canadians can help reuse these components, reduce the need for new raw materials, and help build a strong circular economy.
