Electronics Recycling


Electronics Recycling

Helping the environment is easier than you think.

TCL strives to provide a high level of service to our customers and in the communities we serve. We funded the recycling of over 25 million pounds of electronics during 2019, 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.

EPA Award

Honored by EPA with Gold-Tier Sustainability Award for Second Consecutive Year

TCL North America was privileged to be presented with the Gold Tier Award in 2018 and 2019 in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge. Sponsored by the EPA, the SMM Electronics Challenge is an annual program recognizing electronics manufacturers that rethink business as usual and work to create innovative and responsible solutions. Companies honored 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.



At TCL, we create innovative products with easy-to-use features, but we’re equally proud to focus on environmental sustainability and our recycling programs are getting a lot of attention. TCL’s continued leadership is driving significant change in communities across America, and we proudly participate in creating solution-oriented policies that are making a real difference.
