Annually on November 15, organizations and communities from coast to coast celebrate Keep America Beautiful’ s (KAB) America Recycles Day (ARD). Waste Management is a proud, long-time sponsor of KAB and ARD. “America Recycles Day® (ARD), 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.”
At the heart of this special day is a commitment to take care of our planet’s resources for generations to come through recycling. See how two of our customers celebrated America Recycles Day on November 15, 2019.
