Batteries are highly toxic and should not be placed in the garbage. Brock collects used batteries across campus and recycles them. In 2017, 4,800 lbs of used batteries were collected and recycled!

Brock has several drop off locations for used batteries across campus. Batteries are picked up regularly by the recycler, Raw Materials Company. Nothing from the battery goes to the land fill!

To view a complete list of locations across campus, please click here. Prominent drop off locations include:

  • Computer Commons
  • Library Help Desk
  • General Brock Store
  • Campus Store
  • BUSU

Brock employees can request for pails for battery collection for their area by contacting Kevin Lawr at They may drop off acceptable used work batteries at the Central Receiving and Mail Services in MCG 207, the Science Stores in MCE 304 or any other collection location noted on page 2 of the below flyer:
