Battery Recycling Program
Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when they are improperly disposed of. If incinerated, these metals might be released into the air and may also concentrate in the ash produced by the combustion process. However, by recycling your batteries, you are keeping these heavy metals out of the landfill and the air.
In an effort to lower our environmental impact, LIU Post offers an easy and convenient way to recycle your spent batteries.
We collect all types of batteries, including but not limited to: alkaline, lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, nickel metal hydride, and lead acid batteries. If you have a lead acid battery that needs to be recycled, please contact Facilities Services at x2277.
Currently, there are numerous battery bins throughout campus.
They are located in the lobbies of Hillwood Commons, the Pratt Recreation Center, Life Science near the POD, Humanities Hall, and the Library.
If you are a resident student, you may also recycle your batteries in the battery container found in your residence hall. Please contact your RHD if you are having trouble finding your building's battery container.
