Do Not Throw Products Containing Mercury in the Trash.

Mercury is an element that can be harmful to human health and the environment if not disposed of properly.

You can bring your contained mercury, such as button batteries, thermostats and thermometers, to the Health Department office located at 3 Pond Road in Gloucester, or contact the City's Recycling Coordinator at (978) 325-5600 to find out when Gloucester will be holding its next hazardous waste disposal day.
