Batteries and Universal waste


Don't throw your old single use batteries in the trash! Green U is partnering with E Scrap, a local recycler with 25 years of experience in the field. New single use battery recycling bins will be installed on campus in the Fall, but you can already place a pickup order.

Don't keep large quantities of single use batteries. Place your order once you reach a maximum of 30 batteries. Coral Gables/RSMAS: Call 305.284.8520 or contact Miller SOM campus: Call (305) 2431052 or contact 

For personal items or hard to recycle items, you may be able to find drop off locations in Miami-Dade: insert your zip code and your key word on the RecycleNation website

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