(11 October 2005) North Carolina joined the growing number of states taking action to reduce mercury pollution when it passed a bill that will reimburse vehicle dismantlers for removing mercury switches from vehicles before they are recycled.

"We salute the North Carolina General Assembly and business leaders for their efforts to finalize this critical and cost effective bill, but more could have been done to ensure that automakers pay the tab, not the motoring public," said Molly Diggins, director of the NC Sierra Club.
