HARDI Partners to Recycle Thermostats
The following Connecticut HARDI members have taken a leadership role on mercury thermostat collections: New England Heating Supply, Bridgeport; R.E. Michael Co., Stratford; Shelton Winair Co., Shelton; Sid Harvey’s, Stratford; Torrington Supply Co, Stratford; and Johnstone Supply, Milford.
Bridgeport has been selected for this national pilot program to demonstrate how best to boost collections of out-of-service thermostats that contain mercury. HARDI members have long supported mercury thermostat collection efforts through the manufacturer-funded Thermostat Recycling Corp. in which HVAC distributors act as collection points for waste thermostats for no-cost shipping and recycling. Many members have bins in their stores already. The project is reaching out to every HARDI member in the Bridgeport area to engage them in this program.
