The primary objective of this Working Group is to establish a more accessible and streamlined battery recycling program at McMaster. Battery recycling is not something that busy students prioritize and many throw them in the garbage without realizing that batteries need to be properly disposed of.
The current placements of the battery recycling stations are somewhat hidden from the average student and the numerous battery recycling stations scattered around are very disjointed in their operation. For example, the battery recycling station in the MSU office has not been processed in a year.
We also seek to make the general student body more aware of the notion that batteries need to be properly disposed of as well as the locations of these recycling stations.
