The Thermostat Recovery Program (TRP) is a stewardship program focused on recovering and recycling thermostats that are no longer in use across Canada.

We accept mercury-containing, electronic and mechanical thermostats and ensure that all the components, especially the mercury, are kept out of the waste stream.

It is an easy, safe and FREE way to help reduce the human health and environmental threats posed by mercury. Register below!
