SAN LORENZO, CA, Nov. 11, 2020 – Recycling right helps keep our community cleaner and greener.  America Recycles Day on November 15 is a day designated to recognizing what we can all do to further the recycling effort in our community and our nation.

Here is information about this special day from Keep America Beautiful:

In its 23rd year, America Recycles Day (ARD), Nov. 15, educates people about the importance of recycling to our economy and environmental well-being and helps to motivate occasional recyclers to become everyday recyclers.

“America Recycles Day is our signature recycling program, and this year, it comes at a pivotal time for all of us to take action for our environment,” said Helen Lowman, PhD, Keep America Beautiful President and CEO. “Keep America Beautiful, along with our affiliate network and partners, continues to work hard to improve recycling in America by educating and motivating individuals to make recycling a priority at home and on the go. With collective action, we can create positive and lasting change.”

Focused on individual impact, Keep America Beautiful urges people to pledge to reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle in every aspect of their life by taking the #BeRecycled Pledge. The pledge is a promise to learn about local recycling regulations; to recycle consistently and correctly; to reduce personal waste; and to buy products made from recycled content. Participants are encouraged to help spread the word by educating and encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to recycle in their community and to integrate the act of recycling and buying recycled content throughout their daily routines.
