New option for battery recycling


University departments and units that purchase commercial and industrial batteries now have a third option for recycling (or disposing of) used batteries. Options include:

  1. Batteries Plus Bulbs will pick up used batteries for recycling and disposal.
  2. Place less than five pounds of batteries in an e-Media bin.
  3. Submit a Chemical Waste Collection Request for EH&S pickup of more than five pounds, large or leaking batteries. 

EH&S is now using Batteries Plus Bulbs to recycle most UW batteries, and they will support full life cycle arrangements. Most commercial and industrial batteries are also available for purchase from Batteries Plus Bulbs, including batteries for alarms, boats, golf carts, wheelchairs, and lithium batteries.
