Battery Recycling

View the Recycling & Waste Disposal layer on the campus map for locations of over 100 battery recycling bins on campus. 

All battery types can be deposited in these battery bins, except lead acid. Please individually wrap lithium batteries to ensure their terminals are covered before depositing in a campus battery recycling bin. This can be done with tape or a plastic/paper bag.
