The purpose of the report is to identify the products in municipal solid waste that may contain mercury and to quantify, to the extent that data are available, the mercury present in these products. Since the data are presented in a time trend (1970 to 1989), the report helps to identify which products in MSW are making declining contributions of mercury and which are increasing. The information in the report can thus be used to identify opportunities for source reduction and removal of mercury from the municipal solid waste stream.
