The Tennessee Recycling Coalition or TRC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting recycling and sustainable materials management practices in the State of Tennessee. It is a coalition of many industries, companies, and individuals networked together to raising recycling as the standard in Tennessee.
It recognizes that recycled materials have value and contribute to the economic well-being of all Tennesseans. Recycling promotes and sustains jobs, adds to the revenue of local governments by growing the tax base and through the sale of collected commodities. Recycling further enhances the personal wealth of all Tennesseans through cost avoidance of landfill tipping fee charges. Ultimately, it also protects the environment by keeping the materials out of the landfill.
TRC works in partnership with the local, state, and federal governments to provide resources, education and outreach for the recycling message. TRC is proud of their accomplishments and strongly support the manufacturing industries in Tennessee through our partnership messages. These messages promote high quality feedstock that fuels their manufacturing.
