America Recycles Day: Commit to recycle the right way, every day
DEMONSTRATE: Show your support. Join 75,000 Americans who have already taken the #berecycled
pledge. Visit https://americarecyclesday.org/ to sign the pledge, locate America Recycles Day events
near you, or find tips to host your own event.
PARTICIPATE: Follow these three simple rules to recycle right today and every day.
1. Recycle clean bottles, cans, paper and cardboard.
2. Make sure recyclable items are clean and dry, free of food or liquids.
3. Keep out plastic bags and bagged recyclables. (Return clean bags to a local retailer.)
PERPETUATE: Purchase products made from recycled materials, like from clothing made from plastic
bottles. By supporting companies that use recycled materials, you will continue the cycle that ensures
our valuable resources are put to their best use.
