The Tennessee Recycling Coalition (TRC) is a 501C3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting recycling and sustainable materials management practices in Tennessee.  We are a coalition of industries, companies, and individuals networked together to educate and promote recycling in Tennessee.

Recycling is a sustainable practice that supports our environment, economy, and Tennesseans in various businesses and communities. Our goal is to provide a platform where experts in waste management, recycling, and sustainability from across the state can connect with government and industries to share ideas and knowledge on better ways to manage materials.

TRC works in partnership with the local, state, and federal governments to provide resources, education and outreach for the recycling message. We are proud of our accomplishments and strongly support manufacturing industries, companies, and individuals in Tennessee through our partnership messages.
