Manufacturers Implement New CT Thermostat Law
Originally published: 04.30.13 by HVACR Business Staff
Alexandria, Va. — As of April 1, HVAC contractors and technicians in Connecticut will be required by law to recycle all mercury thermostats removed from service.
The law also requires all HVAC wholesale distributors with facilities in the state to act as a collection point for waste mercury thermostats, according to a news release from The Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC). All that contractors and technicians need to do is hold onto the mercury thermostats they remove from service and return them to any HVAC wholesale distributor in the state to recycle them at no cost.
The Connecticut collection program is supported by 31 manufacturers participating in TRC, which is an easy and low-cost way to comply with the law, the organization says. The new Connecticut law requires all manufacturers of mercury thermostats sold in the state to either individually or collectively participate in a program.
