    If you encounter one on the job, please be cautious because it is filled with pure mercury.

    I have pulled so many mercury bulbs from old thermostats that people have thrown in dumpsters. I still have them but they are stored safely an a double container with newspaper to cushion the fragile glass bulbs.

    If you keep the tstat intact then most HVAC supply houses will take them for recycling.
    I did not know that as I also have removed the bulbs and my supply houses do not want bulbs only. So I too have a collection.
    Some areas have toxic waste collection points that might accept them. Best to get rid of them ASAP.

    @JUGHNE Yeah I could dispose of them properly, but I think mercury is a cool thing to have. I of coarse store it safely and securely. I have showed it in online school it several classes and to several friends of mine. I will definitely keep it in the glass for now.
    Mercury is just and interesting metal to look at and show others and I am certainly aware of the dangers of it and handle it with extra care and safety.

    If you do decide to take them for recycling, be very sure that your recycling facility can and will accept them. A number of facilities either can't, or won't.

    @Jamie Hall I'm pretty sure that my local recycling center will take them if the time comes when I want to get rid of them.
