About America Recycles Day
America Recycles Day® (ARD), a Keep America Beautiful® national initiative, is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Each year, on and in the weeks leading into Nov. 15, thousands of communities across the country participate by promoting environmental citizenship and taking action to increase and improve recycling in America.
Be sure to check out the Keep America Beautiful 2018 “State of Recycling” Forum, conducted on ARD and presented by Keurig Dr Pepper.
Through ARD, Keep America Beautiful and its vast network of affiliates and partners, connects local communities to our national movement by directly engaging millions of people to recycle more and recycle right 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.
