GLIN==> GLRC Announces Release of Mercury in Products Phase-Down Strategy



The Great Lakes Regional Collaboration (GLRC) Executive Committee
announces the release of the Mercury in Products Phase-Down Strategy.

A team of State, Federal, Tribal, and City government staff wrote the
Strategy in fulfillment of a GLRC recommendation to phase out mercury in
products in the Great Lakes basin by 2015. The Strategy makes more than
60 recommendations for action by Great Lakes states, cities and tribes
to take in order to minimize mercury use and releases caused by
remaining uses of mercury-containing products.  These include state bans
on the sale of some, but not all, mercury-containing products and a
variety of mandatory and voluntary measures for managing the disposal of
all mercury-containing products.

The Strategy is now available at
