The province has partnered with the non-profit group Call2Recycle Canada to set up drop off points at retailers, businesses and municipalities.

Batteries weighing under five kilograms will be collected for recycling at 150 sites around  New Brunswick.

Most Canadian Tire are participating, along with several out businesses and communities.  To find a drop off point near you, click the Call2Recycle locator.
