Celebrating America Recycles Day

As Republic employees, we know the value of recycling! America Recycles Day is Sunday, November 15, a special day focused on educating people about what and how to recycle. There are so many myths when it comes to recycling, and as employees of a leader in recycling, we have a unique opportunity to be a part of this special day and share our knowledge to help others become better recyclers.

Here are a few ideas for you and your family to celebrate America Recycles Day:

  1. Participate in the America Recycles Day Blue Nation Online contest (see details below).
  2. Take the Recycling Certified Training for employees (click here).
  3. Check out our new America Recycles Day page on RepublicServices.com.
  4. Quiz your family or friends about what’s recyclable and what’s not.

As Republic employees, We Work for Earth, and we know that about 30% of the items placed in curbside recycling don’t belong there – so let’s work together to get the word out this America Recycles Day!
