America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day is November 15th. This day is the perfect time to recognize how much recycling helps our country and our planet.

Recycling is a big job. In the U.S., recycling and reuse activities provide 757,000 jobs and produce $36 billion in wages each year. All these jobs and wages go to a good cause — according to the EPA, the U.S. is able to keep 34.7 percent of its trash out of the landfill through recycling and composting.
