Helping the environment is easier than you think.
TCL strives to provide a high level of service to our customers and the communities we serve. We have funded the recycling of about 14 million pounds of electronics in 2018, and recommend consumers always look for a recycling or reuse alternative for electronics. Our ongoing support of the collection and recycling of electronics across the country helps improve communities and neighborhoods by keeping equipment out of landfills.
The United States has been developing state-wide landfill bands that prohibit electronic devices from being thrown away in the trash. In states where there is not a wide-reaching ban, some local municipalities have taken upon themselves to do a community-wide ban while also encouraging the reuse and donation of used electronics devices.
TCL's Green Initiatives Fund Recycling Across America
At TCL, we create innovative televisions 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.
SMM Electronics Challenge
The Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge, sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is a program recognizing electronics manufacturers and other organizations for their significant contributions to electronics recycling. Companies recognized in this program use their best efforts to send end-of-life electronics they collect from customers, retailers, and the general public to certified third-party electronics collectors and recyclers. These certifications, including R2 & e-Stewards®, are only awarded to organizations that meet the highest of industry standards.
