ONE DAY to educate.
ONE DAY to motivate.
ONE DAY to make recycling bigger & better.

America Recycles Day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States! Held on November 15, America Recycled Day (ARD) educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.

Focusing on individual action, the day highlights the actions we can all take to collectively address the challenges facing our nation's recycling system. Through ARD, Keep America Beautiful and it's partners inspire communities and individuals to recognize the economic, environmental, and social benefits of recycling.

1. Recycling at home, work, school and on the go.

2. Buying products made with recycled content.

3. Educating and encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to take the
