Attention: Michigan Vehicle Dismantlers and Scrap Metal RecyclersMichigan

In September of 2006, ELVS and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) began converting the existing Michigan Mercury Switch Sweep (M2S2) program to the National Vehicle Mercury Switch Recovery Program (NVMSRP).

The National Vehicle Mercury Switch Recovery Program (NVMSRP) is a voluntary agreement between the USEPA, American Iron & Steel Institute, Automotive Recycler’s Association, Ecology Center, Environmental Council of States, Environmental Defense, End of Life Vehicle Solutions, Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, and the Steel Manufacturers Association to recover mercury switches from 2002 and older scrap vehicles before they are shredded for recycling.

The M2S2 program, previously run as a volunteer partnership between MDEQ and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, has continued to grow under the ELVS/NVMSRP program to provide an efficient means to recycle automotive mercury convenience light switches.

ELVS provided vehicle recyclers with collection buckets and pays the costs of transportation, retorting/recycling or disposal of elemental mercury from the automotive switches. ELVS also provides educational materials to promote vehicle recycling and proper management of mercury switches.
