Battery Recycling Locations in Student Housing

As part of its overall Environmental Stewardship outreach efforts, EH&S provides a comprehensive “Battery Recycling Program” for the campus community. EH&S’ goal with the program is to ensure that used household batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt and rechargeables) are collected throughout campus and recycled responsibly. Batteries can be placed in EH&S-provided accumulation containers, located in common areas such as copy rooms, lobbies or break rooms. There are a number of drop off locations in student housing where batteries can be recycled; see the map below for all the locations. If you need other locations in student housing, please see the map of Battery Recycling Locations on Campus.
