MassRecycle, with the support of Covanta SEMASS, is working to Keep Mercury from Rising! Many household products, like CFL spiral light bulbs, old light switches, and circular thermostats, contain mercury and should not be tossed into the trash. These items must be disposed of properly to keep mercury from contaminating our environment. Learn more here:
The Keep Mercury from Rising Campaign is a multimedia campaign. MassRecycle has developed radio, television and social media spots for the campaign that prompt viewers to use proper methods of disposal for mercury.
As part of the campaign, MassRecycle has also administered training sessions providing information on handling spills and managing disposal of mercury. For 2014, we will be synergizing the Keep Mercury from Rising Campaign with our new R3 Webinars series to host a mercury training webinar.
