Safely Dispose Old Car Batteries Today

April 22, 2010 7:20 AM | News

You know that old car battery you have sitting in your garage? CAA Manitoba wants you to drop it off at one of their depots today as part of Earth Day.

The annual Great Battery Roundup is a program for taking in unwanted vehicle batteries and safely disposing of them.

CAA will be collecting used batteries for free at several locations throughout the city between 12 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Stop by 870 Empress Street, 2211 McPhillips Street, 501 St. Anne’s Road or Unit C — 305 18th Street N. in Brandon.

25,000 vehicle batteries have been diverted from landfills since CAA Manitoba began the program in 1999.
