Attention: Wisconsin Vehicle Dismantlers and Scrap Metal RecyclersWisconsin

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 End of Life Vehicles Solutions Corporation (ELVS) is a not-for-profit corporation created by the automotive industry to promote the industry’s environmental efforts.

In cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, ELVS is providing vehicle recyclers with collection buckets and paying 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.

As a first step in implementing the NVMSRP and in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, ELVS will provide vehicle recyclers with collection buckets and will pay the costs of transportation, retorting/recycling or disposal of elemental mercury from the automotive switches. ELVS also will provide educational materials to promote vehicle recycling and proper management of mercury switches.

The NVMSRP now will replace Wisconsin’s Automotive Mercury Collection program for automotive mercury switches. Please note that there will no longer be collection centers for the automotive mercury switches, they should be retuned in the ELVS buckets.

Only automotive mercury switches will be accepted –no other types of mercury can be shipped in the ELVS buckets.
