ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Thermostat Recycling Corp. (TRC) applauds Johnstone Supply’s huge effort to enhance its thermostat recycling at more than 380 locations nationwide. The HVACR industry leader has committed to making any Johnstone Supply location into a thermostat recycling center in order to make the service available across the nation.

In addition to its Web presence, all participating Johnstone Supply branch locations will showcase new mercury thermostat recycling displays to enhance the visibility of TRC’s program and make it easier for customers to recycle. In addition to increasing recycle collection numbers nationwide, the company hopes to win TRC’s Big Man on Planet (BMOP) Award for the second year in a row. BMOP is a challenge among Heating Air-conditioning, and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) members to see who can recover the most mercury thermostats by Oct. 31.

“Johnstone believes in putting effort into protecting the environment,” said Jeff Schultz, installation supplies product manager. “Making it easy and quick for contractors to drop off old thermostats when they visit the showroom is the most effective way to support that effort, and adding the element of fun with the challenge is even better.”
