2001: Mercury Reduction Act

In 2001, we helped pass the Mercury Reduction Act, including a first-in-the-nation phase out of mercurycontaining thermostats, as well as phase out of mercury-containing thermometers, auto switches and novelty products.

Oregon became a leader in cutting harmful mercury from our waste stream. This act was a major step in Oregon Environmental Council’s efforts to protect children’s health, as well as Oregon’s rivers and fish.
