Getting Mercury Out of Schools: Why it's a problem. Where it is. What to do.

This guidance was prepared in 2002 to assist Massachusetts schools in identifying and removing mercury materials from their classrooms, laboratories and buildings. It was designed as a one-pocket folder with general mercury information printed on the folder and six fact sheets in the pocket. The material has been reformatted to enable printing on 8.5" x 11" paper, though some of the design has been sacrificed to do this.
