The currently battery recycling program on the University of Pittsburgh's campus is limited and not accessible to individual members of the campus community. This project will not only initiate a highly visible and easily accessible campus wide battery recycling program but it will also help to encourage members of the community to be aware of the impacts of the disposal of their electronic waste through education. This will be accomplished through educational posters and battery collection locations dispersed throughout campus.

Students, teachers, professionals, partners... see how you can get involved.
