Before you do this check with hazardous waste disposal at your facility.
We were informed a number of years ago that, although elemental
mercury could still be disposed of (because it is redistilled and
recycled) mercury salts had to be shipped to Switzerland for disposal
since no U.S. hazardous waste landfill would accept mercury anymore.
And the cost of this disposal would be borne entirely by the lab
that generated the waste, and not spread out over all users as
such costs usually are.

So check the local policy before you get started.
