Since 1997, communities across the country have come together on November 15 to celebrate America Recycles Day. America Recycles Day is a nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States.
Not only does recycling provide environmental benefit such as energy savings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, preserve our limited resources, and reduce landfill waste, recycling creates more jobs than landfilling. The recycling and remanufacturing industries account for over one million jobs in the United States and over $236 million in annual revenue.
Please join me in making recycling a part of your daily routine.
