Transportation of New, Used and Waste Lead-Acid Batteries:

There are different requirements for the transportation of New, Used and Waste Lead-Acid Batteries in BC.  New and Used Lead-Acid Batteries that are shipped between the customer's location and the distribution warehouse within a Stewardship Program are not considered Hazardous Waste; however they are considered Dangerous Goods under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act.


All shipments of waste lead-acid batteries from a distribution warehouse to a smelter are considered a Hazardous Waste.  Consequently shipments of Waste Lead-Acid Batteries are subject to the following requirements:

  •     within BC over 1000kg must comply with the requirements of BC's Hazardous Waste Regulation;
  •     within Canada over 1000kg must comply with the requirement of Canada's Export and Import of Hazardous Waste and Hazardous Recyclable Material Regulation;
  •      exports from Canada to US or OECD countries over 5kg must have Export Permit.  All other exports from Canada are banned under the Basel Convention.


Below is the list of CBA Members in British Columbia that meet the criteria set out by the BC Ministry of Environment regarding the transportation of Used Lead-Acid Batteries between their customer and the distribution warehouses listed below.
