If you're looking to dispose of your old thermostat, you can easily do so through the Thermostat Recovery Program (TRP). This program recovers and recycles intact thermostats across Canada, ensuring that all components, especially mercury, are kept out of landfills and waterways. Simply look up an approved public drop-off location and bring your old thermostat in for recycling.
The TRP is a stewardship program delivered by the Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI). This program focuses on recovering and recycling old thermostats that are no longer in use across the country. It is an easy, safe, and free way to help reduce human health and environmental risks from mercury.
The program accepts intact mercury-containing, electronic, and mechanical thermostats, and all components are recycled properly to prevent contamination of soil, water, and air. With over 1500+ participating locations across Canada, it has never been easier to recycle your old thermostat technology and protect public health.
You can drop off your old mercury thermostats at Appleby Systems. In conjunction with the Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Institute (HRAI), we are a designated location to recycle your old mercury thermostats safely.
