Pilot program hopes to encourage thermostat recycling in Indiana and Oregon

Under a new pilot program, contractors in Indiana and Oregon will receive rebate coupons for recycling mercury-containing thermostats. According to the Portland Business Journal, the program, which is partially funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, will help determine if financial incentives will encourage thermostat recycling. The year-long program will allow contractors to recycle the thermostats free of charge and use the rebate coupons, $3 in Indiana and $4 in Oregon, towards the purchase of non-mercury thermostats.
