AMERICA RECYCLES DAY - November 15

AMERICA RECYCLES DAY

Each year on November 15, millions of people across the United States take part in America Recycles Day. The day raises awareness about recycling and the purchasing of recycled products.

How we recycle and reuse products are important. For example, one-use water bottles flood America’s waterways and landfills at a rate of 60 million per day. Reducing this number can be achieved with water filtration devices and using portable re-usable drinking bottles and cups.

Reduce waste by re-purposing and reusing old items. One of the bests ways to do this is by shopping at secondhand stores. Not only does it prevent items from ending up in the landfill, but it also saves you money. The old adage “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure” holds true. From clothing and furnishings to kitchen items and replacement parts, these stores offer more than you might imagine. If you’ve never shopped this way, consider it.

One area where we excel at recycling is aluminum. In fact, the U.S. recycles about 65% of its aluminum. That’s more than any other recycled item.

  • In America, 105,800 cans are recycled every minute.

  • Your television can run for 3 hours from the energy saved by recycling one can.

  • In 2019, an aluminum can was worth about 1.7 cents.

  • The industry pays more than $1 billion annually for recycled cans.

Your waste management professions are a wealth of information regarding recycling. They’ll give you the hard facts and steer you in the right direction, too. The role of waste management goes far beyond garbage collection. In each community, they provide a variety of services and programs designed to protect and reduce the impact we have on our environment.
