Mercury Recycling

Franklin County Public Health and the Ohio EPA eliminated their mercury drop-off program in early 2011. These agencies had partnered with local fire departments to provide this service. As a result, the Fire Division and UA fire stations are no longer able to accept mercury or mercury-related items.

Residents with mercury to dispose of can continue to do so via the county's Household Hazardous Waste program. There is a permanent site that will accept mercury year-round, and occasional drive-through events held at various locations. Specifics of this program are available by calling the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio at 614-294-1300 or clicking on the SWACO website.
