Recycling Initiatives

Alkaline Battery Recycling

Safety & Hygiene, Volunteers, and the Geisinger Sustainability Program have teamed up to offer the opportunity to recycle alkaline batteries. These batteries are used for pagers, some medical equipment, paper towel dispensers, etc. Since Fall 2012, 2,600 lbs of batteries have been diverted from the landfill.

Eyeglasses Recycling

Recycle used glasses in Danville and Wilkes-Barre. Donations are sent to the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (Danville) and the Lions Club (Wilkes-Barre). After sorting and packaging, recycled glasses are given to people in need in developing countries. Your old eyewear gives others the gift of sight.
