Take the Pledge to Recycle Today!

Today is America Recycles Day! This means that all around the US, people are doing their part to help make the country more sustainable. We published a blog post last week that gives an example of what one community in Illinois is doing to raise awareness of green practices and recycling–check out their ‘trashion show’ here!

According to the America Recycles Day website, even though recycling is steadily on the rise, the nation-wide recycling rate is still only 34%. Whether or not your city or town is participating in America Recycles Day, every individual can still do a lot to contribute to the greater cause. Find out which official events are going on in your area here!

Why not make today the day to commit to making the world a greener place? Since 2011, over 30,000 people, as well as your friends here at 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, have formally put their ideas in motion by signing the America Recycles Day pledge. Take the pledge here!
