What are your plans for America Recycles Day?

The N.C. Division of Environmental Assistance and Outreach along with Keep NC Beautiful will again promote America Recycles Day (ARD) throughout the state. America Recycles Day is held on November 15th of each year. Its goal is to bring attention to recycling and buying recycled.

Even though ARD is celebrated in November, local governments and organizations conduct recycling events and educational booths throughout October and November. NC DEAO will again promote the ARD on-line recycling pledge at the upcoming State Fair.

Please register your event and let us know what your local government plans to do to celebrate America Recycles Day. We will help you advertise your event and provide you with various resources from Keep America Beautiful such as pencils, buttons, magnets and posters.

For those that sign the on-line recycling pledge, they will be entered to win statewide prizes similar to those we had last year.

Kristen Aubut, a DEAO intern, will be heading our portion of the project. Please contact her at Kristen.aubut@ncdenr.gov with your ARD events and any questions you may have.
