What is America Recycles Day?
America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful national initiative, is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Each year, on and in the weeks leading into Nov. 15, thousands of communities across the country participate by promoting environmental citizenship and taking action to increase and improve recycling in America. America Recycles Day helps educate people about the importance of recycling to our economy and environmental well-being, and helps motivate occasional recyclers to become “everyday” recyclers.
Sarasota County's event will feature:
- Student Art Contest
- Musical performance by The Garbage-Men band
- Tours of the Landfill
- Composting demonstrations
- Fun games and activities
- Garbage and Recycling Trucks on display
- Nunn Better BBQ Food Truck (food available for purchase)
