Re: mercury disposition



Check out the Wisconsin DNR's mercury information website - it is the best
resources on the web in my opinion:
http://www.dnr.state.wi.us/org/caer/cea/assistance/mercury/thermostat/contractor.htm

Then look at the Thermostat Recycling Corporation's free service at
http://www.nema.org/index_nema.cfm/664
The Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC), a not-for-profit corporation
owned by three NEMA member companies, facilitates the collection by HVAC
wholesalers from contractors of all brands of used, wall-mounted
mercury-switch thermostats so that the mercury can be purified for re-use.
