The New York collection program is supported by 31 manufacturers participating in Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC). The New York law requires all manufacturers of mercury thermostats sold in the state to either individually or collectively participate in a collection program. TRC’s program is the easiest and least-cost means of complying with New York law.
To sign up as a collection site contact TRC toll-free at 1-888-266-0550. Visit www.thermostat-recycle.org for more information about the program.
