Mercury is a deadly poison. Chronic exposure can lead to brain damage. Mercury easily gets into water, then into fish, then back into humans. Mercury containing products of any source must be disposed/recycled as “Household Hazardous Waste.” If you have accumulated toxics, click the Contra Costa County Household Hazardous Waste Program link below for information regarding the facility that serves your area.
