To participate, EQ will send a free collection bucket with a shipping box to your door via common carrier upon request. Each bucket will contain easy-to-follow return instructions. Once the bucket is filled with the mercury-containing device(s), apply the return label (provided with the bucket), securely tape the box, and place it where the designated shipper normally picks up packages. EQ will facilitate the recycling of the mercury-containing device(s). Most mercury items can be returned through this mail-back program. Some examples of eligible mercury-containing devices include thermostats, thermometers, gauges with silver colored liquid inside, dental amalgam, hydrometers, etc.
The program ends Sept. 30, 2013.
