America Recycles Day Packet Printable Version

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality is proud to sponsor America Recycles Day (ARD) in Oklahoma. ARD is a nationwide public education and outreach campaign aimed at focusing attention on the importance of recycling and buying recycled products.

The Oklahoma Recycles Day committee would like to encourage you to “Make Every Day America Recycles Day!”

To stimulate your interest in recycling, we have developed an informational recycling packet. We have filled it with information to educate and encourage you to go out and start recycling and buying recycled products.

Once you learn how easy it is to make a difference, those old habits will be broken and new earth friendly habits will be developed!

Included in the packet:

  • General recycling information
  • Suggested activities you can do on ARD or any day!
  • Recycling factoids
  • Resources
  • Websites
  • Fundraising opportunities
  • Holiday Tips

Partners in the Oklahoma Recycles Day Committee include:

  • Department of Environmental Quality
  • The M.e.t. (Metropolitan Environmental Trust)
  • Oklahoma Recycling Association (OKRA)
  • Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB)
