Mercury Thermometers

The Allegan County Health Department accepts mercury thermometers for recycling and recommends that all area residents replace these dangerous instruments with safer digital devices.  Mercury is a nerve toxin which accumulates in the body and can damage the brain, spinal cord, kidneys and liver.  If mercury spills from a broken thermometer and is not carefully and thoroughly cleaned up, it will continue to evaporate, reaching potentially harmful levels in indoor air.  Mercury thermometers may be dropped off at the Health Dept. any time during business hours; no appointment is required.  Wrap thermometers in plastic and place them in a sealed container (such as disposable plastic jar, bottle or tub) for transport.


At this time Overisel Township residents in need of disposing of hazardous waste will have to contact Resource Recovery at 269-673-5415 to purchase a $30.00 Resource Recovery card.  Then on collection days, with an appointment, your hazardous waste would be accepted. 
 The following substances are accepted:  pesticides, weed killers, cleaners & polishes, aerosols, wood preservatives, asphalt and roofing tar, oil based paint products (thinners, solvents, varnish), photographic chemicals, mercury thermometers, fluorescent lamps and home repair products (glue & cement).  No smoke detectors, explosives, or latex paints.  (Water based paints can be solidified with sawdust or kitty litter and safely disposed of with household trash.)
