Cell Phone / Battery Recycling
With its eye on the environment, Stony Brook University (SBU) has joined a national program called Call2RecycleT to conveniently recycle used rechargeable batteries and old cell phones generated on Campus. This program will strengthen and enhance SBU's existing program by providing more convenient and safe disposal options to the Campus Community. Rechargeable batteries are commonly found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders, and other electronics. Cell phones and other electronics often contain precious metals, copper, and plastics - all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Recycling not only conserves these materials, but prevents air and water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
