RE: Mercury Collections




Marlyn,

As part of the P2Rx Topic Hub project (www.p2rx.org), NEWMOA has
developed four hubs related to mercury.  The two that you will find
interesting are the Mercury-Thermostats and Mercury-Thermometer Topic
Hubs, accessible from http://www.newmoa.org/prevention/topichub/.  Each
of these Hubs has a section on Collection Programs with tools and
publications related to these programs.

Also accessible through the Mercury Topic Hubs is the National Mercury
Reduction Programs Database that John mentioned (listed as Mercury
Reduction Programs in the left-hand navigation).  In the database are
activities or programs of federal, state, and local programs throughout
the US focused on reducing mercury pollution.  Some of the programs in
the database include results of the programs (eg pounds of mercury
collected) and information on how the program was funded.

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!
