Since we started the CFCC Battery Recycling Program in Fall 2014, we have recycled 262 pounds (averaging almost 15 pounds per month…and growing). ┬áKeep up the good work!

Keep up the great work, CFCC!  Have batteries just lying around, drop them off in the marked containers in both CFCC libraries or scattered around campus.
