The NIEHS battery recycling program expanded to include collection points in Building 101's glassware area, Building 102's break room, Building 105, room P105, Nottingham Hall's break room, and the East Campus' first floor break room.
Blue bins are for alkaline (AAA, AA, C, D, 9V, Lantern), carbon/zinc, and silver oxide button batteries. Cardboard boxes are for nickel-cadmium, lithium-ion, and nickel metal hydride batteries. All batteries must be sealed in plastic bags, then put in the collection bins or boxes.
The Health and Safety Branch asks people not to throw batteries away. Contact HSB to report leaking or damaged batteries. Lead-acid, alkaline, carbon/zinc, or button batteries from home should not be brought to work for recycling.
