About America Recycles Day 

America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Held on and around November 15, America Recycles 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 its partners inspire communities and individuals to recognize the economic, environmental, and social benefits of recycling.  

Keep America Beautiful urges people to reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle in every aspect of their lives. Their suggestions include recycling at home, work, school, and on the go, buying products made with recycled content, and educating and encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to do the same.
