You may be able to find drop off locations in Miami-Dade: insert your zip code and key word "single use battery" on the RecycleNation website

UNIVERSAL WASTE
(bulbs, rechargeable batteries, power surges, mercury containing equipment):

You need to download this Chemical Disposal Form, place it on top of the items, keep a copy.

For the Medical campus:
