America’s Recycle Day is November 15 of every year. This event is was started by Keep America Beautiful as reminder to make a commitment to recycle as much as possible. In 2015, there were over 1500 Events with 1.5 Million participants.
There are many things you can do to celebrate and make a commitment to recycle more for the next year. We pulled together a few ideas on how to celebrate America’s Recycle Day.
Visit the the website of your local recycler and review their list of recyclable items. Review what you can recycle in your home.
Set up recycling center at your office. Get ‘work’ to make a commitment to recycle.
Have a Recycle Day Craft Day or party with friends and family.
Go through the house and do a ‘clean up’ of difficult things to recycle such as batteries, light bulbs and either pile or take to a recycle center.
Make a checkmark on forgotten items that can be recycled such as plastic bottles, toilet paper rolls and food containers so you don’t forget. Might even put a ‘Blue Trash-can in rooms to remember to recycle.
Visit neighbors and friends and offer to pick up their batteries and lightbulbs for recycling. Include batteries for hearing aids.
