Recycling the Unusual

You can now recycle your rechargeable batteries and cell phones here at Westminster! The Environmental Center recently set up Call2Recycle, where you can recycle your cell or rechargeable battery by slipping it into a plastic bag and into the box! It is easy, free, and will be recycled in a way that is safe for the environment. 

There are also many other places to properly recycle environmentally hazardous materials.  For more information,  visit the University of Utah's e-waste recycling page.

Battery and cell phone recycling is at the North entrance to Shaw at the Recycling Station.
