America Recycles Day Ideas
America Recycles Day is November 15th, and it’s right around the corner. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about recycling! If you or your small business are looking for last minute America Recycles Day ideas, our team has celebrated in a variety of ways. Here are some of our most successful celebrations:
If you’re not sure how to promote recycling in your community or workplace, environmental engagement events like tabling or games are sure to bring attention to the topic! Engaging with others is one of the best ways to raise awareness about the proper way to recycle. Bringing recycling to the forefront of the conversation helps foster positive change, reduce common recycling mistakes, and spreads the word through a chain reaction of others speaking to their own social circles. Hosting an engagement event on America Recycles Day can help you recycle more, improve recycling quality, and work towards zero waste at your organization.
MRF/Composting Facility Tour
Going on a tour of a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) or a Composting Facility is a great way to learn about possible ways that waste can be diverted from landfills! A close look into composting and recycling systems is an eye-opening experience where the challenges of each become evident. Also, going on these tours also reminds us that recycling and composting is a great way to make something new out of our waste.
Another America Recycles Day Idea is to take your team to a local community clean-up. Our team has been going to monthly local park cleanups where we help to remove trash from the shores of the Baltimore Inner Harbor within the Cheasepeake Bay watershed. This helps clear up green spaces for our community to enjoy, improve water quality, and protect local habitat. It’s also a great team bonding activity!
A waste audit provides a clear picture of what you’re disposing, how well your recycling, and where you can improve. Not all waste sorts are the same and even a small waste sort can yield helpful results! Here’s more about the waste audit services we provide companies. If you want to take on a waste audit as an America Recycles Day idea or otherwise, give us a call and we can help you set it up!
Waste Free Zones
Our office has instituted a waste free zone where all trash is centrally collected instead of at each desk. Here are two of our team members posing with small desktop trash cans used to transport trash from desks to the central location.
