America Recycles Day

Recycling in Our Community
America Recycles

Recycling is the easiest thing we can all do to improve our community, conserve natural resources, and create green jobs.  

Join us in our month long campaign to educate the community on the importance of recycling. Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Support recycling in our community and take the America Recycles Day pledge. 
  2. Get Caught "Green Handed"!  Starting October 14, in a city-wide effort to encourage recycling, Parks & Recreation Staff will be looking for individuals recycling in our parks and City facilities.  You may win a prize for getting caught "Green Handed".
  3. Take part in the November 4, 2019, City Council meeting where the Mayor will read an America Recycles Day Proclamation. 
  4. Join the library for a special story time on November 13.  Library staff will read stories to the children about recycling. 
  5. Read these 15 steps to renew your commitment to recycling.  

After you take the pledge, go a step further.  Send an email to your family and friends and encourage them to take the pledge with us.  

Together, we can make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.
