Mercury Product Management: Why it Matters

When products containing mercury, including fluorescent lamps and older models of thermostats are broken or thrown in the regular trash, mercury pollutes our air, contaminates our waterways, and accumulates in the fish we eat. It is therefore important to carefully handle and safely dispose of all mercury products.


The Massachusetts Mercury Management Act prohibits all commercial items that contain mercury from being thrown in the trash. As of May 2008, all mercury-containing products must be recycled or managed as hazardous waste.



Ensure Your Building is in Compliance

  1. Contract with an authorized recycler to manage spent fluorescent lamps 
  2. When replacing thermostats, bring spent devices to a designated recycling location. Find a collection site at
  3. Prevent unnecessary exposure:

    • as bulbs are removed, store them in a labeled and dated box or cushioned drum to prevent breakage
    • if a bulb breaks in your building, open a window to disperse mercury vapor and scoop up the broken shards—do not vacuum!
    • do not store mercury-containing products for more than one year
