Register Your Local Event for America Recycles Day, Nov. 15

Monday September 17th, 2012

Help your community celebrate America Recycles Day Nov. 15 by scheduling special events online and getting access to valuable resources to plan, promote, and host an event.

Keep America Beautiful's America Recycles Day gives your township the chance to help educate residents about the importance of recycling to our economy and motivate them to take action.

Recognized annually, America Recycles Day celebrates the benefits of recycling while helping to raise awareness about the value of reducing, reusing, and recycling every day.

Local organizers can register their events online at America Recycles Day and get access to:

  • best practices guides for hosting events from plastics bag and film recycling to tailgate recycling;
  • activity ideas;
  • posters (on recycled paper);
  • banners (made from recycled plastic bottles);
  • pencils (made from recycled newspaper);
  • buttons (made from recycled steel); and much more.

Access to these collateral materials and other resources is available to any organization ranging from state and municipal governments to local "green teams" or scouting troops. Many collateral materials are offered "first-come, first served," so early registrations are highly encouraged. Events can be scheduled any time during the month of November but should be held as close to November 15 as possible.
