Review and Assessment of Thermostat Recycling Activities in the Northeast [PDF]
Abstract: The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) contracted with the Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association (NEWMOA) to complete this assessment of mercury-added thermostat collection and recycling programs in order to identify mechanisms that could be used to enhance the recycling of these products in Massachusetts and elsewhere. The following report focuses on the results of the nationwide Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC), a voluntary industry-funded program to collect and recycle end-of-life mercury thermostats, which does not include incentive payments, as well as a number of other state mercury thermostat collection efforts, many of which do include incentives.
Review of Compact Fluorescent Lamp Recycling Initiatives in the U.S. & Internationally [PDF]
Abstract: The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) contracted with the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA) to prepare a report that reviews compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) collection and recycling programs in the U.S. and abroad. The main purpose of Review of Compact Fluorescent Lamp Recycling Initiatives in the U.S. and Internationally is to examine these programs to highlight lessons learned and possible approaches to adopt in Massachusetts. This Report presents the results of CFL collection and recycling programs across the U.S. and in other countries for which information is publicly available.
