The Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) moved from Washington D.C. to Ft. Washington on January 1st. TRC has been in Washington D.C. since 1998. The new location is at 500 Office Center Drive, Suite 400.
TRC is an industry-funded non-profit that specializes in recycling outdated mercury thermostats. The move was made to position the company more centrally to major metropolitan hubs.
“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.”
