Michigan Offers Free Mercury Collection

Program Will Run Through Sept. 30, 2014

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Mercury Collection Project and The Environmental Quality Co. (EQ) have again partnered to facilitate the collection of mercury. The Great Lakes Mercury Collection Program is providing free mercury collection services to residents and businesses in the state of Michigan. The free program will run through Sept. 30, 2014.

This is an ongoing effort to collect and properly recycle mercury. In 2013, EQ received 164 bucket requests and recycled 325 thermometers, 145 thermostats, 520 industrial switches and fuses, and various relay switches and gauges, lab thermometers, manometers, and hydrometers.

EQ will ensure proper recycling methods which will reduce the amount of mercury from entering the environment.

EQ, upon request, will send a free collection bucket with a shipping box to the requestee’s door via common carrier. Each bucket contains easy-to-follow return instructions. Once the bucket is filled with the mercury containing device(s), it can safely be returned in the shipping box to EQ.

Interested parties should call EQ at 877-960-2025 or send an email to EQ at mercurybucket@eqonline.com for a free collection container.
