Mercury Waste Recycling

Improperly disposing of mercury may lead to contamination of the air, rivers, lakes and drinking water, thus increasing risk to the environment and human health.

The challenge as we see it

Mercury has traditionally been used in medical apparatus, electrical devices, precision instruments and in conjunction with other elements to form compounds for industrial applications. Despite its widespread use, mercury is a highly toxic material that needs to be disposed of properly once it is removed from use.
