In August, RSUH signed an agreement with the Sreda foundation for the protection of urban environment. Now the University has special bins for collecting used batteries.
The batteries contain toxic substances. In a landfill, the battery shells are destroyed by corrosion, and lead, nickel, cadmium, lithium enter the soil and groundwater, thus poisoning the environment. Therefore it is extremely important not to throw batteries out with ordinary waste, but to place them in special bins. The batteries will be sent for special processing and not harm the soil, groundwater and, ultimately, animals and people.
Now students and staff have the opportunity to dispose of used batteries properly.
Battery collection bins are located at the following addresses:
