Battery Recycling is Back

submitted by

The battery recycling box is back on the ReUse table in lower level Christensen! While many locations no longer consider alkaline batteries to be household waste, since Minnesota has higher standards for hazardous waste, and Minneapolis and Hennepin County are still recycling them, Augsburg will commit to recycling them as well. You can drop off the following batteries at the ReUse table: alkaline or pile alkaline, button batteries, carbon zinc (CZn), lithium (Li), lithium-ion (Li-ion), mercuric oxide, nickel cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (NiMH), nickel zinc (NiZn), and zinc air.
