Mercury Recovery Program

Post Date:01/27/2020 9:45 AM

Did you know that the Westwood Health Department participates in a Mercury Recovery Program?   We collect and recycle mercury containing thermometers, thermostats, switches, and products that contain liquid mercury. We also collect Button Cell Batteries which are the small batteries used in watches, cameras, calculators, hearing aids, and some toys. These items can’t be thrown away in the regular trash.  Fluorescent bulbs can be brought to Household Hazardous Waste Day, sponsored by the DPW Dept; please check online for the date of the next event. Reminder, alkaline batteries can be thrown away.

Save your button batteries and drop them in one of the collection boxes at the COA, Westwood & Islington Libraries and Town Hall, or bring them along with your mercury containing products to the Health Department, located at 50 Carby Street. For more information, please contact the office at (781) 320-1027.
