Here at DEM, we occasionally receive questions about the proper way to dispose of items that contain mercury – old or broken thermometers, blood pressure machines, and other equipment. Fayette County’s Electronics Recycling Center, located at 1306 Versailles Road, will accept these devices for safe disposal. The center also accepts fluorescent tubes.
The center is not equipped to take compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. However, local Lowe’s and Home Depot stores will accept these items for recycling.
