Batteries and Universal waste

SINGLE USE ALKALINE BATTERIES (AA, AAA, button…):

They are not recycled in Miami Dade County unfortunately. 
THE BEST OPTION for offices pursuing the Green Office program: Order your Big Green Box, collect your batteries, when full ship it back.

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 5 items or less, email a scan/picture of the form to Environmental Health and Safety (only if you are on the Medical Campus).
- For more than 5 items,place a Work Order with Facilities Customer Service at the Coral Gables / RSMAS campuses or at the Medical campus
