Thermostat Recycling Corporation moved its national headquarters to 500 Office Center Drive, Suite 400, Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.
According to company officials, the move positions them more centrally to major metropolitan hubs that have a higher incident rate of outdated mercury thermostats.
“To date, the TRC has eliminated more than two million mercury-containing thermostats from the environment,” said TRC’s Executive Director Ryan Kiscaden. “With urban areas still teeming with these devices, our focus now is to educate those who live and work in these communities about this issue and empower them to take action. The best way to do this is to be woven into their geographic fabric.”
“The Greater Philadelphia Region is centrally located between the nation’s capital and its financial epicenter,” said Kiscaden. “Building relationships with government officials, non-governmental organizations, the environmental community, and corporate stakeholders is key to the success of our new focus. With greater support and involvement from these parties, our message will have greater reach and impact.”
Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) was founded in 1998 as an industry-funded nonprofit. It is supported by 29 manufacturers who branded and sold mercury thermostats, in the U.S., prior to clean technology becoming more readily available.
