TCL strives to provide a high level of service to our customers and in the communities we serve. We funded the recycling of over 14 million pounds of electronics during 2018, and recommend consumers always look for a recycling or reuse alternative for electronics. Our ongoing support of the collection and recycling of televisions and other electronics products across the country helps improve communities and neighborhoods by keeping old equipment out of landfills.
Many states have implemented landfill bans that prohibit electronic and home appliance devices from being thrown away in the trash. In states without a wide-reaching ban, some local communities have passed their own laws preventing electronics from being thrown away, while also encouraging the reuse and donation of used electronics and home appliance devices.
TCL's Green Initiatives Fund Recycling Across America
At TCL, we create innovative televisions, home audio products, and appliances with easy-to-use features, but we’re equally proud to focus on environmental sustainability, and that’s made us a lot more than America’s fastest growing TV brand. TCL is also America’s fastest growing recycler of electronics.
