Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) has been on the front lines of mercury recycling and reclamation for twenty years. We provide for an affordable and effective way of preventing mercury from contaminating the environment. Established by the HVAC industry as a voluntary take-back initiative, TRC has collected over 2.4 million mercury-containing thermostats. Our goal is to ensure that mercury from thermostats does not make it into the waste stream polluting our waterways and the overall environment.
