About America Recycles Day
America Recycles Day® (ARD), a Keep America Beautiful® national program, is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Each year, on and in the weeks surrounding Nov. 15, thousands of communities across the country participate by promoting environmental citizenship and taking action to increase and improve recycling in America.
Through ARD, Keep America Beautiful and its vast network of community-based affiliates and partner organizations connect local communities to our national movement by directly engaging millions of people to recycle properly 365 days a year. America Recycles Day educates people about the importance of recycling to our economy and environmental well-being, and helps motivate occasional recyclers to become “everyday” recyclers.
