TTUHSC El Paso Recycle Program Now Accepts Alkaline Batteries

The TTUHSC El Paso Recycle Program now accepts alkaline batteries. Lithium batteries, though not recycled, should be dropped off with Jose Melchor, occupational/environmental safety manager with the TTUHSC at El Paso Department of Safety Services, for disposal as hazardous waste.

The new process for disposal of 9 volt, AA, AAA, C and D alkaline batteries is as follows:

  • Place a strip of tape around the ends of the battery so that the (+ )and (–) ends are covered and prevented from making contact with ends of other batteries.
  • Drop them off at the following collection points – Professional Liability Risk Management Office, Academic Education Center (AEC), suite 105 on the first floor; or with Ana Alvarado, located in the mailroom on the first floor of the Medical Education Building (MEB).

Collected batteries with taped ends may also be given to facilities operations staff who will then bring them back to drop off points. For more information, contact any department ‘Greenie’ or Erika Guerra at 215-4500 or Susan Butkiewicz at 215-4438.
