America Recycles Day is a program to “Keep America Beautiful” and it’s the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. ARD inspires residents to recycle more and recycle right every day of the year.
This year, ARD is Saturday, November 15, 2014. Take the pledge today to do your part and make a difference!
Here are some recycling tips to get you started:
Rinse and flatten cans, milk cartons and jugs to save space and energy. The lids are recyclable too. No need to remove labels.
Place all your grocery store plastic bags, dry cleaning plastic bags, or any other plastic bags inside of one plastic bag. Then, place the full plastic bag in the recycling bin or take them to your local grocery store to be recycled!
Bring your household alkaline batteries to your local Santa Clarita Public Library branch, Community Centers or City Hall for recycling.
Choose goods and packaging made with recycled content. This closes the recycling loop and creates demand for materials that are recycled.
Take your household hazardous waste to the mobile collection event on Saturday, November 15 at College of the Canyons.
Encourage your supervisor to start a recycling program in your workplace. Paper, cardboard, bottles and cans can all be recycled by your commercial hauler too.
In addition to your curbside cart for your home, Santa Clarita has numerous locations to recycle things from aluminum cans, to used motor oil to paint. Find these locations at GreenSantaClarita.com. Take the pledge now and encourage others to recycle!
