How do I properly dispose of mercury?

Mercury is an element that can be found in air, water, and soil. Mercury is used in some manufacturing and in items like thermometers and compact fluorescent light bulbs. When throwing items away it is important to follow safety steps. Proper clean up can help lower mercury pollution which can be harmful to humans and the earth.

Safely Dispose of Medications

The Iowa Pharmacy Association’s TakeAway program provides a safe disposal option for expired or unused medications and is available at more than 300 pharmacies across Iowa.
