3 Why America Recycles Day? To showcase your company s leadership in recycling. To improve education about what is recycled in your community. To motivate employees to recycle more by providing a way to demonstrate their commitment. Reasons To Recycle Recycling is the easiest thing we can do 365 days a year to save energy, conserve natural resources and create green jobs. Recycling is a multi-billion dollar industry that employs millions of Americans and helps advance our clean energy economy. Our nation recycling rate of 34.7 percent annually: Saves the energy equivalent of nearly 229 million barrels of crude oil or nearly 20 days of all U.S. oil imports. Avoids greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing 34 million cars from the road each year. 4 November 15 America Recycles Days A Nationwide Initiative by Keep America Beautiful November 15 America Recycles Days A Nationwide Initiative by Keep America Beautiful 5

7 Encourage Action Provide measurable ways for employees to recycle. Special Collection Drive Broaden employees understanding of what can be recycled by organizing a special collection drive for hard-to-recycle items. Determine the length of your drive, and then identify best practices and collection locations. Promote the drive internally and externally by customizing America Recycles Day materials. Digitally capture the event and publicize your results. Recycling Heroes Connect with an established national collection program. Plastic Bags abagslife.com Electronics epa.gov/ows/conservematerials/ecycling/donat.htm Rechargeable Batteries & Cell Phones call2recycle.org Other hard-to-recycle items terracycle.net/brigades?show_all=true Engaging Employees to Recycle At Work Encourage employees to increase recycling in the workplace Mug Shots Promote the use of reusable mugs as a normative behavior at work. Photograph employees holding their reusable mugs and post them on mug shot flyers around the office, break room, company Facebook page or net to the office coffee station. Take it to the next level and encourage participation by featuring well-known, recognizable company figures like the CEO, office manager, or the office clown striking a funny pose. Internal Recycling Competition Break into teams and designate a leader for each team. Work with your building management, janitorial staff, or recycling hauler to organize a system for measuring recycling per team. Determine the length of your competition, and plan to weigh and track material for your different teams. Plan to communicate standings widely and repeatedly at each stage. Create a scoreboard that you can place in a high-traffic location and update as needed. Celebrate Recycling Heroes by catching employees green-handed in the act of recycling. Set the length of the contest and focus your hero search in the lunch room, break room, or the entire building. Outfit a team of spotters in America Recycles Day T-shirts and charge these employees with identifying and rewarding colleagues who recycle. Decide what happens when the team spots a Recycling Hero. Consider awarding an Ecofriendly prize, creating a recycling cheer, taking a photo, announcing it over the intercom or sending a company wide , Recognize Recycling Heroes through your company s internal communications to encourage even more recycling in the workplace. 12 November 15 America Recycles Days A Nationwide Initiative by Keep America Beautiful November 15 America Recycles Days A Nationwide Initiative by Keep America Beautiful 13
