The 20th anniversary of America Recycles Day is coming up on November 15. A national initiative of Keep America Beautiful, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting recycling in the United States.

For the second year, Keep America Beautiful is encouraging people to #BeRecycled by learning more about recycling in their community, to consistently and correctly recycle, and to buy products made from recycled content.

Over 2,300 America Recycles Day events are registered so far nationwide. Facility managers interested in hosting their own America Recycles Day event can find planning guides and other support materials at the America Recycles Day website.

For help finding places to recycle office goods such as computers and printers in your area, and a number of other recyclable items, check out the recycling locator at https://americarecyclesday.org/find-recycling/
