The Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) is a non-profit stewardship organization that facilitates and manages the collection and proper disposal of mercury-containing thermostats. Our goal is simple: keep mercury out of the waste stream in order to protect the environment.
What thermostats can I recycle?
All brands of wall-mounted, mercury switch thermostats.
How do I know if the thermostat contains mercury?
If the thermostat uses a dial or lever, odds are it contains mercury and needs to be recycled.
Should I take out the mercury switch?
No. Return the entire thermostat intact, including the cover. The thermostat casing protects the mercury switch during shipment.
