The eighteenth annual national America Recycles Day (ARD) is Tuesday, November 15, 2016. Local governments in metropolitan Washington will be promoting ARD at several events in October and November, such as the Recycle Right Contest. Flyers at these events will allow Washingtonians to pledge to recycle, which will enter them into a drawing for local prizes. You can also pledge online.
The goal of America Recycles Day is to build consumer demand for recycled products and to educate all Americans about the environmental and economic benefits of recycling. COG wants to make consumers aware of the importance of "Buying Recycled."
