TRC公司报告:2006年水银恒温器收集记录说明这一收集计划在家庭中的加热应用和产品制冷分布渠道已有明显的增长。在一年里TRC收集了近113,600个自动调节装置含有1080磅水银,2006年和2005年分别增长了29.3%和32%。最近宣布收集计划将扩展到HHW收集,TRC则希望在2007年或是以后实现更大效果。 2006年收集率排名前五位的州分为别:佛罗里达州、明尼苏达州、加里福尼亚州、马里兰和宾夕法尼亚州。温度调节装置收集在许多州都已经兴起,都已收到了喜人的效果,如俄勒冈州(223%)、缅因州 (226%), 内布拉斯加州(234%), 肯塔基州(544%), and 北卡罗来纳州(544%).俄勒冈州的增长将引起更多的州参与此项计划,提供财政激励承包人进行再循环,但是在印地安那州施行的收集计划,是同样的引领人,却只增加了5%。 TRC是一个私人企业是由以下所列的温度调节装置生产商们组成,分别为霍尼韦尔、通用电气、White Rodgers和Nordyne有限公司(今年刚加入企业)。计划是自愿地,行业发启计划就是不论其品牌为水银开关恒温器的适当处理提供机械装置。 每一个加入此计划的批发商或是承包商,将收到防护贮存柜,一个的工作成本为25美元(额外的柜子也是同样的价格)。当柜子满了,参与者将其送到TRC回收中心,在那里专业人员去除开关,运送它们去水银回收设备房中。从1998年1月开始,TRC计划已收集了534,477水银开关温度调节装置,从而为国家的费气中去除了49,000磅水银。 TRC关注传统和批发商和承包商,是因为他们出售和安装大量的温度调节装置,工业上也已经在基础架构上支持这种有效的收集计划。通过扩展HHW设备,计划现在可以为独立的私家房房主有者在许多地方提供再循环利用。一些当地政府已经划分区域来支持回收温度调节装置计划。私家房房主可以联系当地的HHW管理处。 更多关于TRC计划信息,可拨打(703)841-3249或发送邮件至mar_kohorst@nema.org与执行主任Mark Kohorst联系,或登录http://www.nema.org/trc original text [COLOR=#708090]TRC Records 29% Rise In Thermostat Collections In 2006 (ROSSLYN, VA) - The Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC) reported record collection of mercury thermostats for 2006, evidence that the program is increasing its visibility and reach within household heating and cooling product distribution channels. The TRC collected more than 113,600 thermostats containing over 1,080 pounds of mercury during the year, representing increases of 29.3% and 32%, respectively, over 2005 results. With its recently announced expansion to local household hazardous waste (HHW) collection facilities, the TRC is poised to realize even more dramatic results in 2007 and beyond. The top five states in terms of pounds of mercury recovered in 2006 were Florida, Minnesota, California, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Thermostat collections rose in most states, with impressive gains recorded in states such as Oregon (223%), Maine (226%), Nebraska (234%), Kentucky (544%), and North Carolina (544%). Oregon’s increase may have resulted in part from that state’s participation in a pilot program that provided financial incentives to contractors to recycle, but collections in Indiana, which conducted a similar pilot, rose only 5%. The TRC is a private corporation funded by the following founding members – thermostat manufacturers Honeywell, General Electric, and White Rodgers – and Nordyne Inc., which joined as a corporate partner this year. It is a voluntary, industry-sponsored program that provides a mechanism for the proper disposal of mercury switch thermostats, regardless of brand. Approximately 1,400 wholesale suppliers of thermostats and 225 heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors participate in the TRC program (full lists of participants are provided at http://www.nema.org/trc). HVAC contractors can participate provided they have at least seven contractors or technicians in the firm, or are located in a rural county. Each wholesaler or contractor that joins the program receives a protective storage bin for a one-time cost of $25 (additional bins are available at the same price). When the bins are full, participants send them to TRC’s recovery center, where industry personnel remove the switches and forward them to a mercury recycling facility. From its inception in January 1998 through the end of 2006, the TRC program collected 534,477 mercury-switch thermostats and thereby removed almost 4,900 pounds of mercury from the nation’s waste stream. The TRC has focused traditionally on wholesalers and contractors because they sell and install the majority of thermostats and the industry already has the infrastructure to support an effective collection program. By expanding to HHW facilities, the program is now able to offer a recycling option to individual homeowners in many localities. Some local governments have separate programs in place to manage recycling or disposal of used thermostats directly from homeowners. Homeowners can contact their local hazardous waste management officials for locations in their area.
