The Association of Lamp and Mercury Recyclers (ALMR) has issues guidelines for drum-top crushing of mercury lamps. Earlier this month, the group presented the guidelines to the U.S. Environmental Protection Association and to all 50 states.

"Drum-top lamp crushing is a widespread practice that remains surrounded by confusion. Some states don't allow it, and those that do have a mixed set of policies that don't assure the safe use of the technology or guarantee recycling," according to the ALMR. "Seeking clarity and uniformity, the ALMR has presented EPA and all the States with a set of Guidance Criteria, or Best Management Practices, to improve people's understanding and management of the practice."
