Keep Bartow Beautiful recognizes AmericaRecycles Day annually on November 15. Events include participation in the school recycling contests, online recycling pledges, educational displays, and school tours.
Some previous themes for Bartow County’s America Recycles Day Events have been:
"Follow the Recycled Road."It doesn’t take a wizard to recycle—in fact, it is easy to recycle at home, at work, or even as you travel. Just be smart, and give recycling a start!
"Rally Round Recycling." Recycling is the patriotic thing to do. In fact, civic-minded Americans have been recycling since World War II, to help the war effort. The current goal is to recycle at least 25% of Georgia’s waste stream.
"Round the Bases for Recycling."Many folks know the three R’s-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. But you haven’t tagged home plate until you also BUY Recycled. Many folks forget that there must be a market for recycled content products. So be sure to buy recycled content office products, paper goods, aluminum cans, home building products, etc. They are durable, high quality and cost-competitive, plus they save natural resources.
