Battery Recycling

battery towerThe NMU battery recycling program began in 2008. Battery recycling containers are located in each building on campus where consumer batteries can be placed by faculty, staff and students. Central Receiving staff periodically collects them and brings them to the Marquette County Solid Waste Authority where they are pulverized for recycling. 

Since 2008 NMU has collected over 11,000 pounds of dry cell batteries. Varieties collected included, alkaline, NiCad, and lead acid cells.

Types of batteries accepted include: AAA - AA - C - D - 9 Volt - Button - Photo Electronic - Lantern - Nickel Cadmium

Thank you for your cooperation and for recycling.
