Where to dispose of bottle of mercury?

I have a bottle from a science project when I was young. Where do I dispose of this in a safe manner?

Thanks

In BC., u can call the Recycling Council of BC to ask. I called them about how to dispose of a mercury thermometer, but they said that the red ones contain no mercury.

Drink it.

The only downside to this is you'll grow quite a bit in summer and shrink in winter.
