    How to dispose of mercury ( metal) ?

    I have about 5kg of mercury which I wish to dispose of. Dentists and barometer makers have been banned from using it, so can anyone suggest who might buy it?

    Can't think who would want to buy it.

     Maybe you can dispose of it at a , recycling centre/for hazardus waste disposal. ?

    Correct, but the recyclers charge £20 per consignment and after I have paid carriage costs the net value is zero or less.
