Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) has launched its 12th annual Banish Mercury Off the Planet (BMOP) competition. The contest recognizes members of Heating Air-Conditioning Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) that collect the most mercury-containing thermostats.
HARDI is the largest and most successful trade association representing HVACR distributors in the United States. The BMOP contest begins May 1 through Oct. 31. HARDI members do not have to sign up to enter. Simply return thermostats collected through the green bins TRC places in HARDI wholesale member branches throughout the United States. HARDI members are in every state and have collection bins where their customers — HVACR contractors — can conveniently deposit the thermostats. Winners will be announced at the HARDI’s annual conference, Dec. 2 to 5, 2023, in Phoenix. AZ.
