Michigan’s free mercury collection program continues through summer

The Environmental Quality Company has partnered with the State of Michigan and The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to help facilitate the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Mercury Collection Project. The program’s mission is to address the long time issue of how to easily (and safely) collect and recycle mercury and is off to great to start! The program, while limited to the state of Michigan, is free and available to anyone within the state – including residents, traditionally overlooked small and large businesses, and even Fortune 500 Companies. EQ is the leader in sustainable solutions and is the only answer when it comes to the safe and compliant handling of all mercury containing devices.

The program is easy. Upon request, EQ will send a free collection bucket with a shipping box to your door via common carrier. Each bucket will contain the easy-to-follow return instructions. Once the bucket is filled with the mercury containing device(s), just simply apply the return label (provided with your bucket), securely tape the box, and place it where the designated shipper normally picks up your packages. EQ will facilitate the recycling of the mercury containing device(s). Most mercury items can be returned through this mail-back program. Some examples of eligible mercury containing devices include: thermometers, thermostats, gauges with silver colored liquid inside, dental amalgam, hydrometers, etc.

The program ends September 30, 2013. Call 734-547-2517 or e-mail mercurybucket@eqonline.com today to order your free collection container and instruction kit.
