Save the Environment and Save the Turtles

Every battery you recycle at the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot until November 4, 2012 will earn 30 cents for the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre or ecoSpark.

Please visit to register how many batteries you dropped off, and which charity you would like the 30 cents per battery to go to. So easy!

But you only have until November 4

Round up your household batteries and take them to the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot, located at 400 Pido Road in Peterborough.

The Household Hazardous Waste Depot is open Wednesday to Saturday, 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
