New York Recycles!
New York Recycles! is our way of promoting recycling and buying recycled in New York State. Various educational events featuring waste reduction, reuse, recycling, composting and buy recycled will take place all year, which culminates on November 15.
New York Recycles! is part of a national event - America Recycles. The national theme, "It All Comes Back To You!" will also be New York Recycles! theme. Every year there are thousands of events across the country
America Recycles is one of the most comprehensive recycling awareness campaigns in the nation. Each year millions of people become better informed about the advantages of recycling at home and buying recycled products as a result of the group's efforts. Last year, thousands signed pledges to recycle and buy recycled. Local and state governments issued proclamations and resolutions in support of the program.
Our goal for New York Recycles! is to have at least one recycling or buy recycled activity or event in every county in the state (Remember, we are also encouraging waste reduction, reuse and composting in this endeavor!). Help us by sponsoring and encouraging others to host a recycling or buy recycled (or waste reduction, reuse or composting) event. The following pages provide a listing of recycling and buy recycled related activities for libraries, places of worship, businesses, government agencies, schools, and civic organizations.
After deciding on your activities, report your event to us. Send information on your event to:
New York Recycles!
