ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Thermostat Recycling Corp. (TRC) announced it has launched four pages on its website in the Spanish language. TRC said the webpages, which can all be found at www.thermostat-recycle.org/es, have been developed to enable Spanish-speaking users to learn more about its mercury thermostat recycling program.
The Spanish-language webpages include information about TRC’s program, how to sign-up to participate, safe storage and shipping information, and frequently asked questions. Launching alongside the webpages is a Spanish-language PDF with instructions on how to package and ship TRC’s recycling bin, as well as a downloadable Spanish-language poster located within the promotional toolkit.
“The Spanish-language webpages enable TRC to interact with a larger audience to inform and encourage direct participation in the national recycling program,” said Ryan Kiscaden, TRC’s executive director. “We have received feedback from HVAC wholesale distributors that Spanish-language materials would be useful to their customers, and we look forward to increasing engagement and participation from the Spanish-speaking community.”
This is the first time TRC has implemented program information and materials in another language.
