America Recycles Day (ARD) has been the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States since 1997. Every year on and around Nov. 15, thousands of local event organizers mobilize throughout their community to educate millions of people about recycling within their communities.
Plan your own ARD event by taking advantage of the tools and resources available to make event planning easy and successful. Once planned, register your event here – this allows your event to become part of the national network of America Recycles Day events!
Additionally, you can encourage your networks to take the #BeRecycled Pledge, which is a promise to actively choose to live a recycled lifestyle by committing to “Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.” in all aspects of daily life. This includes:
- Recycling at home, work/school and on-the-go;
- Buying products made with recycled content; and
- Educating and encouraging friends, family and neighbors to take the #BeRecycled Pledge.
