Mercury Health Thermometer Exchange - Free!

The DWM will accept old mercury health thermometers year round at our office located at 100 E State Street, Suite 1500 in St. Johns (First Floor of County Courthouse). Residents are encouraged to transport their old mercury thermometers in a plastic Ziploc baggie. The DWM will exchange your old mercury health thermometer for a new digital thermometer. Limit one digital thermometer per person.
