Exchange mercury thermometers
The Office of Environmental Programs offers a service to make it easy to exchange your mercury-filled thermometer for a more environmentally-friendly one. The EPA has identified mercury as one of 12 priority persistent bioaccumulative toxic (PBT) pollutants. Thermometers represent a significant source of mercury on campus. Environmental Programs will replace your mercury thermometers with alcohol-filled thermometers for free. Contact Chemical Safety Specialist Amber Skiles at 3-3565 to participate in the thermometer exchange program.
