America Recycles Day is November 15th

Recycling BinsClean out the office, the garage and the closet – it’s time for America Recycles Day! Each November 15th, askHRgreen.org joins with others around the nation to promote local recycling services and celebrate all the ways recycling helps our communities. Recycling creates jobs, saves natural resources, reduces the dependence on landfills, and allows unwanted items to have a second life.

Cities and counties across Hampton Roads are celebrating America Recycles Day with a variety of recycling collection events and educational opportunities during the month of November. Collection events differ by locality, but many accept items such as electronics, plastic bags, household hazardous waste, documents for shredding or unwanted household items and clothing. Find out what’s happening where you live!

There’s more to recycling than just your curbside bin! Many local cities and counties offer expanded recycling options year-round through drop-off recycling. Take recycling to the next level by utilizing all the recycling services available. Learn what other items can be recycled through drop-off recycling options in your city or county.  And remember to recycle more, trash less this America Recycles Day – and every day!
