Jackson Systems: Doing Our Part to Protect the Environment
Jackson Systems is helping keep mercury out of the waste stream in order to protect the environment through its participation with #ThermostatRecyclingCorporation.
In Indianapolis, our facility at 5418 Elmwood Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46203, is a collection site!
Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) is a national nonprofit network of over 3,600 mercury thermostat collection sites. TRC has recovered more than 10 tons of mercury since its inception in 1998.
TRC facilitates and manages the collection and proper disposal of mercury-containing thermostats. It was originally founded in 1998 by Honeywell, White-Rodgers and General Electric as a voluntary joint venture. Today, 30 manufacturers, including Jackson Systems, support the program. Members like us continue to provide financial support which demonstrates our commitment to a cleaner environment.
Collection sites consists of HVAC wholesale distributors and HVAC contractors. In 2006, TRC expanded the program to include household hazardous waste collection sites and thermostat retailers. Now, more than 3,600 businesses and communities in 48 states are enrolled in our program. Since our founding we’ve collected over 2.1 million mercury-containing thermostats – that’s kept 10 tons of mercury out of the waste stream.
Our collective goal as supporters of TRC is simple: to leave a better world than we found by keeping mercury out of the waste stream and to better protect the environment.
