Rogers Supply Company, Inc. is a proud partner of the effort to recycle mercury thermostats and keep mercury out of the environment. Please drop off your mercury thermostats in the convenient bin located in each of our branches.
Did you know that a mercury thermostat contains approximately 1,000 times more mercury than a light bulb? When mercury bulbs from thermostats are put into the regular trash, they can wind up in landfills where they could then leach the mercury into our water supply. Luckily, in partnership with Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC), we’re here to make recycling mercury thermostats easy.
As an industry-funded non-profit, TRC’s mercury thermostat recycling program provides a safe way that is free and easy for you to dispose of mercury thermostats. Simply bring the thermostats with you to drop off on your next visit to us and we will take care of the rest with TRC. There is no cost to the contractor, as all ongoing costs to ship and process the mercury-containing thermostats are covered by TRC. Visit www.thermostat-recycle.org to learn more about the program.
It may seem like a small thing but in reality it’s not. Since TRC’s founding they’ve recycled over 1.7 million thermostats and kept more than 8 tons of mercury out of the waste stream.
