Mercury is potentially a very harmful substance if it is not properly managed. Regulations have been established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce the release of mercury into the environment and to encourage proper recycling. Protecting the health and safety of employees through proper and documented recycling programs, reduces the liability of your institution and are important considerations when selecting a recycling solution.
