The EH&S Office is responsbile for the recycling of several streams at the College. They include the following:
Alkaline batteries are collected at numerous locations on campus. Some areas that contain alkaline recycling bins include Swem Library, Small Hall, and Facilities Managment to name a few. Lead Acid batteries are collected in a central storage location. Contact the EH&S office if you have questions regarding the locations for recycling your used batteries.
The College utilizes a significant amount of flourescent bulbs across campus. These bulbs are recycled by crushing the drums through the use of a specialized device. If you have lightbulbs that are in need of being recycled, contact the EH&S office.
Oil is utilized for many different applications on campus from lawnmowers to research apparatus. We recycle used oil through a company that reclaims and reuses the material. If you have used oil that needs to be disposed of, contact the EH&S office.
