Attention: Massachusetts Vehicle Dismantlers and Scrap Metal RecyclersMassachusetts

During its 2006 session, the Massachusetts Legislature enacted revisions to Chapter 190 of the Acts of 2006, regarding mercury management. This act requires vehicle dismantlers and scrap recycling facilities to remove automotive mercury convenience light switches before the vehicle is crushed or shredded.

As part of this program, ELVS will provide educational materials on switch location and removal as well as collection buckets. ELVS also will pay for the shipping and recycling the switches/assemblies removed by dismantlers and scrap metal recyclers.

Beginning September 2008, Massachusetts recyclers will receive $3 for each automotive mercury switch returned providing they certify that the switches came from vehicles salvaged in the state of Massachusetts.
