Attention: Mississippi Vehicle Dismantlers and Scrap Metal RecyclersMississippi

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 October of 2006, ELVS and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) began converting the existing Mississippi Voluntary Mercury Switch Recycling program to the NVMSRP. The Mississippi program continues to grow under the NVMSRP 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.
