RE: What are common sources of Mercury?


Here's a resource developed by Minnesota's Western Lake Superior Sanitary District with the general public in mind:  http://www.wlssd.duluth.mn.us/mercury.htm  

Not only does it list some common household sources of mercury, but also points out mercury-free alternatives where applicable.
