How do I dispose of mercury?

You cannot dispose of mercury by yourself. You can either pay a professional company to dispose of it for you or, better yet, have it recycled. Mercury Waste Solutions, 1-800-741-3343, will recycle mercury. In the meantime, make sure the bottle in which your mercury is stored has plastic bags wrapped around it. Should the bottle ever break, you'll really appreciate having secondary spill containment around the bottle.
