Call2Recycle Program Recycles Batteries on Campus

The University of Houston has recently begun a recycling program on campus for rechargeable batteries and cell phones.

Partnering with Call2Recycle, a program of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC), UH is able to offer free battery and cell phone recycling on campus.

Recyclers must simply place a battery or cell phone in a plastic bag provided at the front of the box, seal the bag, and place it inside the box. A limit of one battery per bag is permitted.

Acceptable rechargeable batteries (each weighing less than 11 lbs) include the following:
Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd)
Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH)
Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn)
Small Sealed Lead Acid (SSLA/Pb)

Cell phones (and their batteries) are also accepted, regardless of size, make, model or age.

Boxes will be provided on campus at the following locations:
� Faculty Senate Office, Third floor of M.D. Anderson Library
� University Center
� Quadrangle OB Lobby
� Technology College, Dean�s Office
� Engineering College, Dean�s Office
� General Services Building
� Administration & Finance, Office of Dr. Carlucci, E. Cullen 226
� Library Lobby
� Cougar Card Office

The University of Houston is pleased to provide another means of promoting sustainability and wise use (and reuse) of resources. And, as the recycling program states, �Call2Recycle applauds you for taking a proactive role in the preservation of our environment. Together, we can Recharge the Planet.�
