Modesto America Recyles Day

“America Recycles Day”, a campaign instituted by the National Recycling Coalition, is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and buy recycled products. Since its inception in 1997, the American Recycles Day campaign has grown to include millions of Americans pledging to increase their recycling habits at home and work, and to buy projects made with recycled materials. Residents in every State of the nation participate in America Recycles Day events. Held annually on and around November 15th, millions of people become better informed as a result of the national America Recycles Day campaign.

In the “spirit” of America Recycles Day, the City of Modesto’s Solid Waste Division is partnering with the Stanislaus County Department of Environmental Resources and B-Green Boyett Petroleum in hosting an America Recycles Day event on Saturday, November 14, 2015 from 10:00am-2:00pm at Cruisers, 4931 McHenry Ave., Modesto. Participating on site vendors will include Covanta, Solar City, Casey, Modesto Junk and the City’s Compost Facility. Green ideas in a reusable bag from…
