Norwood residents can now DROP OFF mercury bulbs, mercury non bulb products, button cell batteries and rechargeable batteries as well as household batteries at the Mercury Recovery Shed on Saturdays only. Click Residential Mercury Flier to read more.

Click Mercury bulb pictures  to view the variety of mercury bulbs to be diverted to the Mercury Recovery Shed. Another not so recognizable mercury bulb is the HID lamp, which is also acceptable for drop off at the Mercury Recovery Shed.

Did you know one little button cell battery has as much mercury as an 8ft fluorescent tube? Please NEVER throw button cell batteries in the trash. Click BUTTON CELL BATTERIES to view the many types of button cell batteries that should NEVER be thrown in the trash and can now be dropped off at:

1. Mercury Recovery Shed
2. DPW Administrative Offices

4. Senior Center

To access the Mercury Recovery Shed, you will need a town residential permit( no fee) to the Winter Street Compost Site. Please call DPW at 781.762.1413
