TRC Announces 2017 Big Man on Planet Competition


FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. — Thermostat Recycling Corp.’s (TRC’s) sixth annual Big Man On Planet (BMOP) competition began May 1, in partnership with Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI). BMOP runs through Oct. 31 and all HARDI wholesaler members are eligible to participate.

BMOP encourages HARDI members to promote TRC’s mercury thermostat collection program at their branches. To accommodate distributors of all sizes, three winning wholesalers will be determined as follows: the one that recycles the most pounds of mercury overall, the one that recycles the highest average pounds of mercury, and the one with the highest branch participation rate (for distributors with more than 10 locations).

Additionally, a $500 store incentive will be awarded to the top three branch locations that recycle the most. Winners will be recognized at HARDI’s annual conference, Dec. 2-5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The HVAC wholesale channel continues to be our strongest ally,” said Ryan Kiscaden, TRC’s executive director. “BMOP has become our signature competition and continues to positively impact the collections for our program. It’s something industry professionals look forward to each year.”
