The Mercury Call Line is a number Nebraskans can call to obtain information regarding mercury issues, including proper clean-up of a mercury spill, health effects of exposure to mercury in the event of a mercury spill, and recycling/disposal availability for either intact mercury devices or "free" mercury.

The Call Line is staffed most hours of the day, however voice mail is available when staff is not, and missed calls are returned within 24 hours.
