America Recycles Day buttonOnline registration is now open for Keep America Beautiful's America Recycles Day (ARD), the one day to educate and motivate people about the importance of recycling to our economy and for our environmental well-being.

Recognized annually on Nov. 15, ARD celebrates the benefits of recycling while providing an educational platform that helps raise awareness about the value of reducing, reusing and recycling—every day—all throughout the year.

Online registration is now open at for local organizers to schedule events in their communities and gain access to valuable resources to plan, promote and host an event. To support event organizers, there are best practices guides for hosting events from plastics bag and film recycling to tailgate recycling, activity ideas, posters (on recycled paper), banners (made from recycled plastic bottles), pencils (made from recycled newspaper), buttons (made from recycled steel ) and much more.

Access to these collateral materials and other resources is available to any organization ranging from state and municipal governments to local "green teams" or scouting troops. Many collateral materials are offered "first-come, first served," so early registrations are highly encouraged. Events can be scheduled any time during the month of November, but should be held as close to Nov. 15 as possible.

Many more opportunities are becoming available and will be announced soon, so stay tuned. Be sure to bookmark and "Like" our Facebook page ( for the latest information. We look forward to seeing the results of your local events.

America's leading companies are proud to make America Recycles Day, a national initiative of nonprofit Keep America Beautiful, possible. National sponsors to date include: American Chemistry Council, Anheuser-Busch, Glad, Johnson & Johnson, Nestleé Waters North America, Owens-Illinois, PepsiCo and Waste Management.
