“It’s an honor to serve as a board member for an organization that serves such an important role in our industry and for the environment,” remarked Munin. “There are still many homes with mercury thermostats and it’s important for homeowners to know where to go to recycle them when they look to change their thermostats. TRC offers programs nationwide and provides an easy way for homeowners to dispose of their mercury thermostats safely.”
