How to Dispose of Mercury?

There are many federal, state as well as local laws on how to properly dispose mercury. You want to contain as much of it as you can in a tightly closed jar. keep it high enough if you have kids so they can not reach it. I would then contact the local hazardous waste facility and ask for proper instructions as how to get rid of it safely. Be careful to not let your skin make contact with it as mercury will absorb into your skin.
