Battery Recycling

The School has embarked on a battery recycling program and we ask for your cooperation in helping to make it a success.

Batteries are most commonly separated into three groups: alkaline, nickel-cadmium and lithium. HSPH has established recycling collection stations on each floor throughout the School consisting of a blue “Recycle” basket with two smaller containers inside the main basket. The large basket should be used for lithium batteries (most often discarded from laptops), the smaller gray insert for alkaline, and the small black bucket insert for nickel-cadmium units. We ask that you use the appropriate container for each battery. The vendor requires that the types not be mixed.
