Beginning February 1st 2017, distributors must begin charging eco fees on the sale of batteries in the province of Quebec, British Columbia and Manitoba.
The program is being run by Call2Recycle Canada and all Franklin Empire branches are registered as collection sites. We will be collecting old batteries and used cellphones for proper disposal. For more information on the program visit http://www.call2recycle.ca/
The fee applies if the battery is sold alone or if it is packaged with another product (for example a power tools kit or flashlight).
