Disposal of Used Batteries

Used batteries (including those from UPS backup units) constitute waste which must be disposed of properly. The following steps must be taken to properly dispose of battery e-waste.

Date the Battery – once taken out of service write the date on the battery with a permanent marker. At that point, the battery must be disposed of properly within 6 months of that date. 

Used batteries should not be disposed of in the University trash but brought to a regional battery recycling center for disposal. Some centers offer cash value for batteries. If such a center is used for University-owned equipment, a cash receipt should be received and the proceeds deposited in an appropriate University account.
