Battery Recycling at MUN
The Sustainability Office holds free battery collection events twice a year on the St. John’s campus. Please save the spent batteries from your office or lab for the next Memorial Battery Blitz. Tape all the terminals and store in a safe place, like in a yogurt or ice cream container, until the next event.
Date, time and location of the next Memorial Battery Blitz will be announced on Newsline and on this webpage. These events are for batteries purchased by Memorial only as the university has to pay for this service.
Do not bring batteries from home. Your own personal batteries can be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste facility at the Robin Hood Bay landfill on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 8 am and 4 pm.
If you have a lot of batteries or batteries larger than five kilograms (11 pounds), e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please do not send batteries to the Sustainability Office by internal mail.
