Founded in 1971, the Tri-City Ecology center (TCEC) is your local leader in advocating sound environmental policies that preserve and maintain unique natural resources, clean air, clean water, and a high quality of life.
TCEC has led the local environmental movement since 1971, when it established a local recycling center and launched the Eco-Logic newsletter.
