Honeywell Supports Thermostat Disposal

MINNEAPOLIS — Honeywell is partnering with distributors and contractors to collect thermostats nationwide to support the Thermostat Recycling Corp.’s (TRC) efforts to recover and properly dispose of mercury thermostats.

The TRC effort recovered nearly a ton of mercury according to a 2011-2012 progress report, and has recovered nearly seven tons of mercury since 2002.

“This is especially remarkable considering that the majority of states do not have mercury thermostat disposal bans in place,” TRC executive director Mark Tibbetts said. “We rely on partners like Honeywell to encourage HVAC contractors to voluntarily participate in the program. It is important that thermostats are properly disposed of in order to keep the mercury out of our landfills.”

HVAC distributors and contractors interested in participating in the recycling program are encouraged to visit TRC’s website, www.thermostat-recycle.org.
