America Recycles Day takes place annually on Nov. 15. Prince William County will join thousands of local organizers and Metropolitan Washington Council of Government (MWCOG) jurisdictions to celebrate America Recycles Day (ARD), a national initiative of Keep America Beautiful.
Prince William County residents can acknowledge their commitment to recycling and win prizes by taking the “I Recycle” pledge. The contest, hosted by MWCOG, will accept pledges online until Nov. 20. One lucky recycling supporter will win a $300 REI gift certificate and one lucky K-12 student will win a $300 REI gift certificate and a $500 grant for a recycling or environmental program at their school or in the Prince William community. For eight of the past nine years, a Prince William entrant has won a MWCOG regional prize.
Prince William area residents may take the 2021 “I Recycle” Washington area pledge online before Nov. 20 and be entered in the MWCOG drawing.
America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day and coast-to-coast community-driven awareness campaign dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. It has been held on – and in the weeks leading into – November 15 since 1997. For more information about recycling in Prince William County, visit www.pwcva.gov/recycling.
