[ARCHIVED] America Recycles Day on Tuesday, November 15, 2016

“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 America Recycles Day campaign has grown to include millions of Americans pledging to increase their recycling habits at home and work, and to buy products made with recycled materials. Residents in every State of the nation participate in America Recycles Day events. Held annually on 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, B green with Boyett Petroleum and the State Theatre in hosting an America Recycles Day event on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at the Historic State Theatre at 1307 J Street, Downtown Modesto. We will be showing the award winning environmental film, Racing to Zero at 11:00am and 6:30pm at no charge. The film takes a look at trash as a valuable resource and offers alternatives for recycling instead of disposal. In addition, you will have an opportunity to meet the movie producers, Diana Fuller and Christopher Beaver and ask questions and make comments about the documentary filmed in the City of San Francisco.

Please put Tuesday, November 15th on your calendar, and join us as we celebrate America Recycles Day in Modesto.
