This year, BMOP will stand for Banish Mercury Off the Planet. TRC is excited to announce that ALL TRC/HARDI wholesale members are enrolled in the annual BMOP contest, there is no need to sign up. The competition runs May 1st through October 31st.
BMOP encourages HARDI members to promote TRC’s mercury thermostat collection program at their branches. All you need to do is return your recycling container filled with mercury thermostats during the competition time period like you usually do. It's that simple!
To accommodate distributors of all sizes, three winning wholesalers will be determined as follows: the one that recycles the most pounds of mercury overall, the one that recycles the highest average pounds of mercury, and the one with the highest branch participation rate (for distributors with more than 10 locations). Additionally, the top three branch locations that recycle the most will be publicly recognized. Winners will be recognized at HARDI’s annual conference, Dec. 1-4 in Austin, Texas.
Past winners include:

Additionally, the top three branch locations that recycle the most pounds of mercury during the competition, regardless of which distributors win the three main awards, will receive public recognition at the HARDI Conference.
