Thermostats

Mercury thermostats (manual tilt-switch type) contain the toxic metal mercury and are not permitted to be disposed of in York County garbage.  Click here to view options to manage HHW in York County.  The Thermostat Recycling Corporation, https://www.thermostat-recycle.org/zipsearch/, also lists local companies that accept mercury thermostats at no charge. 

Electronic and magnetic snap switch thermostats contain no mercury and can therefore be disposed of in your regular garbage.
