America Recycles Day
Annually, since 1997, communities across the country have come together on November 15 to celebrate America Recycles Day. More than a celebration, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling in the United States. One day to educate and motivate.
Keep California Beautiful and its partners are supporting events throughout California to provide various recycling opportunities and provide information through educational fairs on the benefits of environmental stewardship as related to resource management. We are focused on broad interpretations of reduce, reuse, recycle and re-buy.
We are looking forward to America Recycles Day 2014 here in California. Last year was a huge success with events registered on the official America Recycles Day website ranging from E-Waste collection, secure document shredding, compact flourescent and battery recycling events, film screenings, educational fairs and radio broadcasts.
For more information about California Recycles Day, its history and registered events, Keep California Beautiful and California Resource Recovery Association are co-hosting a website at http://recycleday.org/
You don’t have to attend a special event to have your own individual impact. We hope that every Californian will show that they want to “Keep California Beautiful” and take the America Recycles Day online pledge to learn about recycling in their community and to recycle one new type of material within the next month!
You may also visit the official America Recycles Day website for additional information about events! If you are hosting an event during the month of November, please register it on the national America Recycles Day website. Plus you can find events to participate in your area.
