Fire Alert: Lithium Batteries Cause Fires

PLEASE ENSURE BATTERIES ARE REMOVED FROM ANY WASTE BROUGHT INTO THE ECOWASTE FACILITIES

What are lithium batteries?

Lithium-based batteries are inexpensive, lightweight, powerful, and environmentally safer than most alternatives. They are widely used in most small electric and electronic devices like tools, toys, phones and laptops. There are both rechargeable and non-rechargeable lithium batteries.

Why can they be a fire hazard?

Lithium batteries are generally safe to use, but owing to how widespread they are, they have resulted in a multitude of fires both during its use and after they are discarded. Lithium batteries puncture, overcharge, overheating, short circuit, internal cell failure and manufacturing deficiencies can all result in fires.

Lithium Batteries in Landfills and other Waste facilities

When disposed along with other waste and brought into waste facilities that are not designed to treat batteries, they can cause fires that put operatives’ lives at risk and cause large material and environmental damage.

How to Recycle Lithium Batteries Safely?

Lithium batteries are included in the province-wide recycling program provided by Call2Recycle. Batteries can be returned to participating retail stores, as well as some municipal recycling depots and transfer stations. To find your nearest recycling drop-off point, visit the program website at www.call2recycle.ca, or see the search results below for the lower mainland area.
