Guidance For The Removal Of Mercury Switches From End-Of-Life Vehicles Demolished In The Commonwealth And For Storage, Shipping, Recycling, Or Disposal Of Mercury Switches Removed From Vehicles:  The purpose of this guidance is to reduce the quantity of mercury released into the environment by establishing standards and procedures for the removal of mercury switches from end-of-life vehicles demolished in the Commonwealth. The guidance also provides for the storage, shipping, recycling, or disposal of mercury switches removed from vehicles.  This guidance will be replaced by regulations to be considered for final adoption by the Virginia Waste Management Board at their meeting on January 8, 2007.
