I'd try asking a neon supplier as they'll be used to dealing with the handling & disposal of mercury.

We had a large quantity of flourescent tubes to dispose of recently and found our local City Electrical trade supplier has a recycling box for tubes at a cost of 12p each - maybe they take neon tubes too
