Thermostat Recycling Corporation applauds Johnstone Supply’s effort to enhance its thermostat recycling at more than 380 locations nationwide. It has committed to making any Johnstone Supply location into a thermostat recycling center in order to make the service available across the nation. The company is promoting the service online at JohnstoneSupply.com.
In addition to web presence, all participating Johnstone Supply branch locations will showcase new mercury thermostat recycling displays to enhance the visibility of TRC’s program and make it easier for customers to recycle. In addition to increasing recycle collection numbers nationwide, the company hopes to win TRC’s Big Man on Planet for the second year in a row. BMOP is a challenge among HARDI members to see who can recover the most mercury thermostats by October 31.
“Johnstone believes in putting effort into protecting the environment,” said Jeff Schultz, installation supplies product manager. ‘Making it easy and quick for contractors to drop off old thermostats when they visit the showroom is the most effective way to support that effort, and adding the element of fun with the challenge is even better.”
The Thermostat Recycling Corporation, founded in 1998, is an industry-funded non-profit corporation supported by 31 manufacturers who historically branded and sold mercury thermostats in the United States
