America Recycles Day
Hey, Hampton Roads, are you recycling? Each year on November 15th, Americans celebrate recycling and all it means to our communities. Take advantage of special recycling events happening in Hampton Road during the month of November to clear out your unwanted electronics, paper, household hazardous waste and more!
We are big recyclers. And chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re a recycler, too. But not everyone is, not all the time, and not everything that’s recyclable gets recycled.
To help get and keep us all motivated, we celebrate America Recycles Day, an initiative of Keep America Beautiful. On or around November 15th, cities and counties across Hampton Roads celebrate by hosting a variety of recycling collection events, presenting a great excuse to clean out drawers, closets, offices, garages and storage sheds!
While events differ by locality, many include the collection of items that aren’t accepted for regular curbside recycling, such as electronics, plastic bags, ink and toner cartridges, household hazardous waste, documents for shredding, unwanted household items and clothing.
Help us spread the word about recycling! askHRgreen.org has resources you can use and share to help spread the word about the importance of recycling. The “Recycle More, Trash Less” marketing campaign toolkit includes digital ads in various sizes, a :30 and a :60 radio spot, as well as a :60 video.
