TRC Announces 2014 Big Man On Planet Competition. Thermostat Recycling Corporation announces 2014 Big Man On Planet competition for all HARDI wholesaler members to compete in nationwide.

Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) has announced the 2014 Big Man On Planet (BMOP) competition, in partnership with Heating Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI), has begun. BMOP will run through October 31st and all HARDI wholesaler members must sign up by May 31st at www.thermostat-recycle.org/BMOP to be eligible to participate and receive free promotional materials.

BMOP encourages HARDI members to promote TRC’s mercury thermostat collection program at their branches nationwide to recover the most thermostats. Three winners will be determined according to company size and TRC will give a $500 gift card to be used as an employee incentive to the branch of each winning company that recycles the most mercury thermostats. Winners will be chosen by TRC and recognized at HARDI’s annual conference, December 7-10 in San Antonio, TX.

Last year’s BMOP winner was Johnstone Supply, who recycled 107 lbs. of mercury during the competition. “We’re looking forward to participating again this year—and to ramp up our game,” states Jeff Schultz, Air & IAQ Product Manager for Johnstone Supply. “The competition is fun, while also helping to protect our environment. Being able to drop off the mercury thermostats in the course of regular business is a real convenience for our contractors even during the busiest season.”

For those not yet participating in TRC’s collection program and are interested in doing so, more information is available at www.thermostat-recycle.org, or by calling 888-266-0550.
