Despite the changes in federal regulations to reduce the amount of mercury going into landfills and usages in products consumers use, mercury free alternative products have been slow to replace existing items, and in some case, impossible to do so. These wastes, including spent fluorescent lamps and batteries as well as mercury-containing ballasts, thermostats, and electronics, are required by law to be recycled in most states. Knowledge of this situation makes educating people on the proper procedures and protection needed to clean up a mercury spill mandatory.

This White paper will give you the correct procedures in handling a mercury spill.
