It’s a pledge you won’t regret taking, and it will mean an even more beautiful Austin. Memi Cárdenas of Austin Resource Recovery stopped by to tell us about America Recycles Day and how you can get in on it. On November 15 communities across the country come together to celebrate America Recycles Day. More than a celebration, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling programs in the United States. Celebrate this America Recycles Day by taking the pledge to recycle every day, everything and everywhere! Show your commitment to reaching Austin’s Zero Waste goal, not only on November 15, but all year round!
