EIU Students Collecting Used Batteries for Recycling, Food for Charity


Through March 13, an Eastern Illinois University student group is conducting a used-battery drive to help the environment, as well as a food drive to help area residents.

The EIU College of Science Student Advisory Board will recycle the batteries to keep them out of landfills, where they can contaminate the soil, water and air with lead, mercury, cadmium and other dangerous materials.

The food drive will benefit the Catholic Charities food pantry.

Collection boxes are set up in the following on-campus locations: Department of Psychology office, Physical Sciences Building; Study Abroad office, Blair Hall; College of Sciences office, Old Main; Family and Consumer Sciences office, Klehm Hall; Department of Biological Sciences office, Life Science Building; Department of Economics office, Coleman Hall; School of Business office, Lumpkin Hall; and the Reading Center, Buzzard Hall.
