Schools

Mercury is used in many items found in schools, such as barometers, switches, thermostats, lighting, and in chemistry and science labs. The most common ways that spills occur in schools are from people not handling these items properly and not storing the items correctly. The following web sites provide information on what Michigan is doing to remove Mercury from schools along with Mercury free alternatives.
