Dispose of Mercury Safely

Got Mercury? It’s very toxic and cleanup is expensive when there is a spill.

Mercury is found in common household devices, such as thermostats and thermometers. Sometimes people find jars of mercury when cleaning out an old home. Give Barnstable County a call for free pickup of elemental (liquid) and disposal information for devices: 508-375-6690.
