Keep PA Beautiful Asks: How Will You Celebrate America Recycles Day Nov. 15?

America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful initiative, takes place annually on and around November 15 to recognize the benefits of recycling while providing an educational platform that helps raise awareness about the value of reducing, reusing and recycling – every day – throughout the year.

“America Recycles Day provides a means to encourage recycling 365 days a year whether it’s at school, home or whole communities,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Recycling helps protect our environment by saving natural resources such as trees, water and minerals and reduces the amount of waste sent to our landfills. We are grateful to Keep America Beautiful for providing these tools and resources to our local communities.”

Keep PA Beautiful invites you to plan your own ARD event by taking advantage of the wide variety of tools and resources KAB offers to make event planning easy and successful.
