Customer safety and environmental stewardship is increasingly important which is why we’ve partnered with Thermostat Recycling Corporation to ensure that mercury thermostats are safely collected and properly disposed. Mercury is a harmful health hazard to humans and wildlife that can contaminate the environment if not disposed of properly. With the help of utility companies and thousands of other national partners, we’ve collected over 2.1 million tons of mercury since 2007. All Famous Supply branch locations collect mercury thermostats for recycling. Find a branch near you.
