America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day was November 15, 2021. This nationally recognized day educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.

Below are some celebration highlights from the U.S. EPA and FBA:

  • To kick off America Recycles Week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its

    National Recycling Strategy

    , designed to address major recycling challenges, including contamination, to create “a stronger, more resilient and cost-effective municipal solid waste recycling system,” the agency says, with the goal of achieving a 50 percent national recycling rate by 2030.
  • For most of November, FBA worked to celebrate America Recycles Day by sharing facts, videos and how to recycle information for boxes on our social media channels through paid and organic posts. We encourage you to follow us on
