Mercury, when improperly disposed of, can be converted to methyl mercury in aquatic environments. This is a highly toxic material that does not break down. Articles containing mercury must be properly disposed of as Universal Waste.
Materials that may contain mercury include:
- Flow Meters
- Button Cell Batteries
- And More
At Maine Labpack, we handle all types of equipment containing mercury and dispose of them per applicable regulations. Our team comes to your site, properly packages your mercury devices, generates proper shipping documentation, and ships the materials off-site. Once processed, each shipment has an accompanying certificate of recycling.
