America Recycles Day Promotes Education and Resources

Join communities across the nation as they recognize America Recycles Day on November 15. Since 2006, the national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful has spearheaded the event, which is dedicated to promoting recycling in the U.S. by offering special material collection drives and educational activities.

Materials available to groups include advice about setting up collectibles stations and customizable templates for promoting activities to increase recycling awareness, commitment and local action. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the amount of waste that the average citizen composts or recycles has increased from 17 percent in 1990 to more than 30 percent today.

Republic Services of Indianapolis is our area’s largest recycling service that coordinates with neighborhood trash collections. In recycling paper, all plastics No. 1 to 7 and all colors of glass, it provides outside pick-up and operates many drop-off locations throughout the city.
