Mercury is a naturally occurring element. It is one of the most commonly used heavy metals due to its unique properties. It is these same unique properties that make Mercury one of the most dangerous heavy metals. Mercury is highly toxic when inhaled, absorbed through the skin, or ingested.
Mercury is regulated by the Federal EPA as a hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Your business faces a potential financial liability for the improper disposal of Mercury and Mercury Containing Devices.
