Collecting mercury a priority


The town is continuing its efforts to collect mercury, which can be dangerous if not managed properly. Under the mercury recovery program, thermostats, thermometers, mercury switches, button cell batteries, and fluorescent bulbs under 2 feet in length may be brought to the Marblehead Board of Health office in the Mary A. Alley Municipal Building, 7 Widger Road. The office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday; and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday. - Steven Rosenberg
