Emergency Services Mercury Cleanup-Spills Greater than One Pound


Caution

Any time one pound or more of mercury is released to the environment it is mandatory to call the National Response Center(NRC). The NRC hotline operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (800)424-8802. Note that because mercury is heavy, only two tablespoons of mercury weigh about one pound.
