Battery and Cell Phone Recycling

The heavy metals and other pollutants present in most batteries and cell-phones are toxic and if not managed properly, tend to make their way back into our watersheds and food supplies.
Okanagan College has set up battery recycling boxes at all of our libraries to make the job of proper battery disposal easier for everyone.
  • You can find the battery boxes in the libraries at all 4 centers.
  • We will accept any standard battery weighing less than 5 kg.
  • We also accept complete cell-phones with and their batteries.
