Since 2000, the automotive industry has been working with various states to provide educational outreach on best practices for the removal of Hg automotive switches by dismantlers. ELVS will continue these efforts and provide information via this web site.
ELVS supports the auto industry’s belief that the most important step that can be taken to reduce the amount of mercury entering the environment from motor vehicles is to have the mercury switches removed by the recycling/dismantling industry at the vehicle’s end-of-life.
ELVS has contracted with The Environmental Quality Company (EQ) an environmental services company with nationwide capabilities and 50 years of experience, to facilitate dismantlers’/recyclers’ removal of automotive mercury switches prior to a vehicle being scrapped.
