EHS collects alkaline battery containers Monday thru Friday. After submission of your pick-up request,
please allow 5 to 7 working days, not including weekends, for EHS to pick up your container(s).
Please note: It is prohibited to recycle your batteries from
home or personal use at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine.
Alkaline batteries are the typical non-rechargeable batteries that most people use. They are not EPA regulated
and although it is legal to throw them in the garbage, they can be recycled through the UNMC/Nebraska Medicine
Alkaline Battery Recycling Program. Please reference the
Battery Disposal Fact Sheet
for additional information.
