RE: Mercury Collections


We had state-wide thermometer exchanges in Florida in 1999 and 2000.  I wrote
a report on the 1999 exchange that discusses many of the logistical details.
I'll send this and a shorter report on the 2000 exchange in a direct e-mail
(they are ~ 1 mb together).  

Also, if you haven't seen it already, NEWMOA has a site listing many mercury
reduction projects
(http://www.newmoa.org/prevention/mercury/programs/index.cfm) which might be
handy for additional leads.

Finally, the Florida P2 web page has the newsletters regarding the exchanges.
The can both be found here:
They are the mercury issues of Septembers 1999 and 2000.
Good luck!

Subject: Mercury Collections

Hi Everyone!

I know that there have been some successful mercury collections 
out there.  Are there reports or workplans from the collections.  
Does anyone have more information on what is entailed in planning 
a collection?  What is the process, cost, companies used for 
recycling/disposal, and other logistical details?  Also, were the 
collections for households, companies, or both?  

Any information would be greatly appreciated!  

Thanks in advance for your input!
