Mercury Thermometers

Many of us grew up with mercury thermometers in our homes.  It is possible, although not definitive, that breaking a fever thermometer may affect your family's health.  Simply bring your mercury thermometer in a zip lock bag to any of the following locations and you will receive a safe and accurate digital thermometer at no cost.

  • Monroe County Health Department -- 2353 South Custer Rd., Monroe
  • The Medicine Shoppe – 7455 Secor Rd., Lambertville
  • Macomb Pharmacy (ProMedica Monroe Reginal Hospital Professional Building) – 730 N. Macomb St., Monroe

If you have a large quantity of mercury, please contact the Recycling and Green Community Coordinator at (734) 240-7909.

If mercury is spilled in your home, business or vehicle please visit the following site How to Clean Up Spilled Mercury or contact the Monroe County Health Department at (734) 240-7900.
