US Ecology has partnered with End of Life Vehicle Solutions Corporation (ELVS) to facilitate dismantlers'/recyclers' removal of automotive mercury switches prior to a vehicle being scrapped.  This program supports the auto industry's belief that the most important step that can be taken to reduce the amount of mercury entering the environment from motor vehicles is to have the mercury switches removed by the recycling/dismantling industry at the vehicle's end-of-life.

Important Program Note – ELVS Replacement buckets are not provided automatically!

To receive a replacement bucket, you should call (800) 495-6059 or e-mail 10 days before you are ready to ship your full bucket and leave your request for a replacement bucket. Provide your company name, shipping address and bucket size (small or large). A replacement bucket will be shipped to you via UPS.
