Mercury spills and cleanup

When mercury is spilled, it shatters into tiny beads and spreads in many directions. These tiny droplets can accumulate in the smallest places. The droplets emit toxic, odorless vapors, which can be very dangerous when inhaled by people or pets.

  • Report all mercury spills immediately by calling the 24-hour, toll free hotline at 1-800-943-0003.
  • Possible mercury poisoning? Call the toll free poison hotline at 1-800-222-1222.
  • Any object that touches mercury will become contaminated.

To learn how to prevent, clean up and properly dispose of mercury, visit EPA's Mercury in Your Environment page [exit DNR].
