Battery Recycling on the St. John's campus

The Sustainability Office has developed a new program to recycle batteries used at MUN. Battery recycling containers, like the one pictured above, have been delivered to general offices on campus. To find the location of a battery recycling container near you or to request one for your area, send an email to This program replaces the Battery Blitz events that were being held twice a year.

All that is required is that you tape the terminals of every battery before you place it in the battery recycling container. When your container is getting full, send an email to

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), email or call 864-3047 for more information. Please do not send batteries to the Sustainability Office by internal mail.
