Lehigh has a battery recycling program coordinated by Environmental Health & Safety, LU Facilities, and the Office of Sustainability. Two clear plastic battery recycling bins, labeled Alkaline Batteries and Rechargeable Batteries, are located in 12 locations throughout campus.
Once the battery recycling bin is full, simply submit a work order via LU Facilities Work Order Central. LU Facilties will then send out a work order for ABM to collect.
Batteries should always be placed in the separate battery recycling bins and NOT in single stream recycling. The following batteries are recyclable:
- Alkaline, Lithium, and other non-rechargeable batteries (AA, AAA, C, D, 9 Volt)
- Rechargeable Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hybrid)
- Rechargeable Ni-Cd (Nickel Cadmium)
- Rechargeable Ni-Zn (Nickel Zinc)
- Rechargeable Li-Ion (Lithium Ion)
- All models of cellphones and their batteries
- Rechargeable batteries up to 11 pounds each
Please cover all terminals with adhesive tape prior to disposal.
