Dec. 8, 2010: HARDI and TRC Promote Mercury Thermostat Collection

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Thermostat Recycling Corp. (TRC) and Heating, Airconditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) have reached an agreement to promote TRC’s national mercury thermostat collection program.

While HARDI has worked with TRC to grow the number of mercury thermostat recovery locations with its HVACR wholesale distributor members for years, this agreement formalizes the partnership and puts into place mechanisms for growing HARDI member participation even more. TRC will provide HARDI members regular mercury thermostat-related policy and regulatory updates as well as expanded collateral and marketing materials to help promote HARDI members’ commitment to responsible mercury management. HARDI has committed to getting every thermostat-selling distributor member into a mercury thermostat recovery program.

TRC is a program that allows HVAC contractors to properly dispose of waste mercury thermostats at no cost. TRC relies on HVAC wholesale distributors to act as the primary collection points for mercury thermostats taken out of service. Beyond a one-time participation fee of $25, there are no recurring costs for distributors to participate.

“TRC is thrilled to formalize its partnership with HARDI,” said Mark Tibbetts, TRC executive director. “The active support of HVACR wholesale distributors is critical to the success of TRC.”
