Battery disposal

Batteries are highly toxic and should not be placed in the garbage. Individuals should collect their personal batteries and take them to an authorized drop-off centre in the region. Brock employees may drop off acceptable used work batteries at the collection point by Science Stores, Room E304, in E-Block of Mackenzie Chown, or other collection points noted on page 2 of the flyer:
