In 2008, a former OPIRG McMaster working group (MacBRO) helped generate more attention to the idea of safe disposal of batteries on campus, and helped increase the number of places you can bring your dead batteries on campus by working with EOHSS to revise their policy.

You can drop them off in the marked buckets outside our Resource Centre in MUSC 229, or at the following campus locations:

  • A.N. Bournes Science Building (ABB) , Room B 166
  • Commons Building (Main Entrance/Service Desk, Room 129)
  • David Braley Centre (DBAC), Main Entrance/Joan Buddle Service Desk
  • Mary Keyes Residence (Main Entrance/Service Desk, Room 126)
  • MUSC (OPIRG Office, Room 229)
  • MUMC, Room 4N43
If you recycle your batteries somewhere else, on or off campus, please share the location with us in the comments. Help keep our landfills free of battery pollution!
