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 and the State Theatre in hosting an America Recycles Day event on November 13, 2019 at the Historic State Theatre at 1307 J Street, Downtown Modesto. We will be showing the multi-award environmental film, the clean bin project at 10:30am and 6:00pm at no charge.
The film asks the question ‘Is it possible to live completely waste free? Partners Jen and Grant go head to head in a competition to see who can swear off consumerism and produce the least garbage. Their light-hearted competition is set against a darker look at society’s waste problem. This film is for all ages.
Please put Wednesday November 13th on your calendar and join us as we celebrate America Recycles Day in Modesto.
