MERCURY THERMOSTAT COLLECTION ACT
Beginning July 1, 2013, the Mercury Thermostat Collection and Performance Requirement Regulations established additional requirements for mercury thermostat manufacturers, and collectors. These regulations require annual performance goals for the collection of mercury-containing thermostats and established a methodology for calculating the number of such thermostats that become waste annually. The regulations also establish identification requirements for persons delivering thermostats to collection centers. Then annual reporting requirements for thermostat manufacturers have been updated since the legislation was adopted in 2008.
