TRC Awards ‘Big Man on Planet’

ARLINGTON, Va. — Thermostat Recycling Corp. (TRC) named Johnson Supply (Houston) the 2012 ‘Big Man On Planet’ (BMOP), an annual award given by TRC in partnership with Heating, Air-conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) to honor the HARDI member who has done the best job promoting the TRC mercury thermostat collection program. The BMOP award was presented to Johnson Supply at HARDI’s 2012 annual conference in Grande Lakes, Fla.

“The BMOP Award is a great opportunity for HARDI members to be recognized for their work to protect the environment, and Johnson Supply has done an outstanding job of that,” said Mark Tibbetts, executive director, TRC. “Johnson Supply has been a strong leader in the ongoing campaign to collect mercury thermostats, and as a highly respected member of the HVAC industry, its efforts to champion the TRC program have contributed significantly to the program’s growth and success.”

“Johnson Supply is honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Richard Cook, president and COO, Johnson Supply. “We strongly support the TRC mission of mercury thermostat collection in order to protect the environment and keep as much mercury out of the waste stream as possible. We are committed to doing our part in that effort, and to encouraging others in our industry to participate in this worthy program.”

Johnson Supply was selected from a group of 13 HARDI members participating in the competition, which have established a combined total of 233 mercury thermostat collection sites across the country. Johnson Supply maintains 23 collection sites at its branches in Texas and Louisiana and shipped TRC over 1,200 waste mercury thermostats during the competition.
