You have installed a programmable thermostat to help cut down on your costs with your heating and cooling bills, but what do you do now with the old thermostat? Please ensure that you dispose of your old thermostat properly. Look for local recycling boxes such as Switch the Stat. Switch the Stat is a nationwide program set up to recover and recycle old thermostats that are no longer being used. They ensure all the parts are recycled properly without damaging the environment. They also prevent mercury from entering into our environment and reducing gas emissions and energy consumption.
To dispose of the thermostat you can drop your old thermostat off at a certified contractor near you.
