Mercury collection available

MARQUETTE – EQ, a US Ecology Company has partnered with the state of Michigan to facilitate the collection of mercury through the Great Lakes Mercury Collection Program until September. Any Michigan resident or business can contact EQ for a free collection bucket/box and instruction kit by calling 877-960-2025, emailing mercurybucket@eqonline.com or going to Facebook.

The container is delivered to the residence or business with a return UPS label. Mercury devices such as thermostats, thermometers, gauges, barometers, switches, relays, sensors, dental amalgam and more can be placed in the bucket or box and returned to EQ for proper disposal using the UPS label. EQ will ensure proper recycling methods, which will reduce the amount of mercury entering the environment.
