DEP Encourages Public To Renew Commitment To Recycling On America Recycles Day

As part of America Recycles Day today, the Department of Environmental Protection is encouraging residents across New Jersey to renew their commitment to recycling as a way to protect the environment and conserve natural resources throughout the year.

America Recycles Day is a Keep America Beautiful national initiative focused on promoting and celebrating recycling. Recycling is an opportunity for residents to help keep their communities clean and vibrant. More than 2,000 events are planned nationwide for America Recycles Day.

Residents can do their part by keeping nonrecyclable items such as plastic bags, propane tanks and used syringes out of curbside and workplace recycling bins. Recyclable items are valuable raw materials used to make new products and should not be mixed with other materials.
