What Can I Do to Prevent
Mercury Pollution?

Mercury is being phased out of many retail products.  As a consumer, educate yourself, and consider not purchasing mercury-containing items if a substitute is available.  When an item containing mercury is purchased, dispose of it properly when it becomes waste.  Here are some ways that you can reduce mercury pollution.   Also, educate your family, neighbors, and fellow employees concerning alternatives to mercury and reduced mercury products.
