New York Recycles Day/ America Recycles Day
Date: November 15th, 2022
Time: All Day
Location: Across NY State and the US
New York Recycles Day complements America Recycles Day, a national initiative to raise awareness of the economic, environmental, and social benefits of recycling, while recognizing New York State’s leadership in promoting recycling and reducing waste.
Across the state, individuals, community groups, businesses, schools, and government agencies celebrate New York Recycles Day in a variety of ways, from encouraging others to reduce their waste by pledging to improve office or school recycling programs, hosting a reuse exchange, and improving awareness of local recycling requirements.
America Recycles Day educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.
Focusing on individual action, the day highlights the actions New York State residents can take to collectively recycle right and inspire communities and individuals to recognize the economic, environmental, and social benefits of recycling. The #BeRecycled pledge is a promise to actively choose to live a recycled lifestyle by:
Recycling at home, work, school and on the go;
Buying products made with recycled content; and
Aside from the #BeRecycled Pledge
, people can be part of the recycling solution by participating or hosting their own America Recycles Day event. Events can be scheduled at any time during the fall leading into the official America Recycles Day celebration.
