Mercury is a neurotoxin that can harm humans and wildlife, so protect the environment and drop off your old mercury thermostats and thermometers at OCRRA’s Rock Cut Road Drop-Off Site on Monday, August 13, 2018 from 7:30 am - 10:30 am. 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.
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!*
Learn how you can tell if you have a mercury containing thermostat or 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. Broken thermometers, trash and recycling will not be accepted at the event.
Can't make the event?
You can drop off mercury containing thermometers and thermostats year-round at the Rock Cut Road 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.
