About America Recycles Day


An initiative of Keep America Beautiful (KAB), America Recycles Day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the U.S.

Each fall, thousands of communities across the country participate in ARD on and around November 15 to promote environmental citizenship and encourage action. Through ARD, KAB, along with its affiliates and partners, inspires communities to directly engage their residents to recycle more and recycle right 365 days a year.

Since its inception in 1997, thousands of communities across the country have participated in ARD throughout the fall. With KAB’s support, recycling ambassadors recruit thousands of organizations, schools, colleges and universities, businesses, and government entities to get involved in educating residents of all ages about recycling resources in their community through collection drives, demonstrations, competitions, tours, displays and other special events.
