America Recycles Day is Nov. 15

Thousands of creative recycling events are being planned for America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful initiative, which takes place on and in the weeks leading up to Nov. 15. In its 18th year, ARD educates people about the importance of recycling to our economy and environmental well-being, and helps to motivate occasional recyclers to become everyday recyclers. There are so many consumer products beyond aluminum cans and plastic bottles that can be recycled and made into something new and useful, which is why this year’s theme is Bathrooms, Bags and Gadgets, said Brenda Pulley, Keep America Beautiful’ s senior vice president, recycling. We also want to encourage people to participate in the I Will Recycle online pledge sweepstakes, which is a fun and engaging way to commit to recycling this America Recycles Day. Individuals are encouraged to demonstrate their recycling spirit and automatically be entered in the sweepstakes by posting a photo on Twitter at @KABTweet or @Recycles Day or @Keep America Beautiful on Instagram holding a recyclable product that they pledge to recycle with the hashtags #IWillRecycle Sweepstakes. The purpose of the briefing is to provide information to Members of Congress and staff about the state of recycling, the business of recycling, its many benefits, and the importance of engaging individuals to recycle.
