OCRRA Mercury Drop-Off Event

Mercury is a neurotoxin that can harm humans and wildlife, so protect the environment and dispose of your old mercury thermostats and thermometers!

Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Environmental Products and Services.

Thanks to the generosity of Covanta, event participants bringing a mercury containing thermostat or thermometer will receive a Lowe's gift card worth $10. Residents dropping off a mercury containing thermometer will also receive a mercury-free (digital) thermometer!*

Attendees must fill out a registration form in advance and place it on the dash of their vehicle on the day of the event. Other mercury containing items (things that are NOT a thermometer or thermostat) cannot be accepted at this event; make a household toxics disposal appointment to properly manage them instead.

Learn how you can tell if you have a mercury containing thermostat or thermometer.

Can't make the event?

You can drop off mercury containing thermometers and thermostats year-round at the Ley Creek Drop Off Site during normal hours of operation, however, the bounty returns to $5 after the event.

*One gift card per resident, regardless of the number of mercury containing items that are dropped off.
