Mercury Waste

MERCURY WASTE

We are the only mercury waste recycling facility to be ISO 14001 certified. This means we maintain the highest environmental management standards in the industry. While the disposal option of incineration (IMERC) is available, we accept mercury devices and debris for retort. Retort is the best option because of the subsequent environmental liability and high disposal costs of incinerating mercury wastes. LEI maintains a RCRA Part-B permit to recycle all types of mercury wastes.Mercury Uses - thermostats, thermometers, barometers, dental amalgam, electrical switches, fluorescent lamps
