It is hard to reduce the use of thermostats. However, we can switch to energy-efficient programmable thermostats and recycle the old ones in a responsible way.


Only modern energy-efficient thermostats can be reused.


Switch the 'Stat is a product stewardship program focused on recovering and recycling old thermostats. Thermostats are considered hazardous waste due to the mercury content. It is important to ensure they are disposed of appropriately.

Thermostats can be dropped off for free recycling and all CVRD Recycling Centres, or at one of the other facilities found on the map above.
