Thermostat Recycling Corporation Attends NAHMMA And E Source Forum
Last week, Thermostat Recycling Corporation attended two conferences, NAHMMA and the E Source Forum. NAHMMA is the North American Hazardous Materials Management Association, dedicated to preventing pollution and promoting safe and cost-effective methods of handling household hazardous waste. The E Source Forum provides research and guidelines for utilities and their customer base. This information allows utility companies to put their customers first while meeting business objectives and solving any corporate challenges.
At the E Source Forum, TRC was chosen to present a five minute pitch on the program. We shared information about our common interests—mercury, sustainability and social responsibility. Mercury poses a risk to both human health and environmental health. Sustainability provides a path in which we can mitigate and eventually eliminate that risk. We have a social responsibility to the populations that would be affected by that risk.
The sale of mercury and mercury-containing products (namely mercury thermostats) is banned. That’s why we exist. Anyone removing a mercury thermostats must dispose of it properly, and we provide the tools to do so. Proper disposal protects the environment and leads to a more sustainable ecosystem.
What we do is simple, easy and free. It’s cost effective, and by recycling mercury thermostats you are keeping mercury out of the waste stream which protects both humans and the environment. Moving to smart and digital thermostats is more energy efficient and environmentally sustainable. Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
