Battery Recycling

      Battery Recycling

      1. All lead-acid batteries used on campus are recycled.
      2. Our campus currently has a contract to purchase/exchange lead-acid batteries. Stores staff can be contacted about the types of batteries included in the contract.
      3. No person on campus will contract to purchase a lead-acid battery unless that contract involves the exchange of an old battery for the new battery.
      4. All lead-acid batteries needing disposal are transported to the designated battery recycling storage area in the Stores/Receiving area.
      5. Stores staff must be notified prior to delivery to insure security at the site.
      6. These campus batteries are part of a Stores exchange contract and are picked up by our vendors on a regular basis.
      7. It is suggested that staff exchange old batteries when they pick-up a new one. This process will save transportation time and expense to the department.
