You're invited to Texas Recycles Day, a proud part of America Recycles Day.
Held on and around November 15, America Recycles Day is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States!
This day began as Texas Recycles Day in 1994, and became America Recycles Day in 1997 after 2 employees of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality suggested the idea to the Nation Recycling Coalition.
What is TexasRecyclesDay.org?
With help from contributing organizations like Keep Texas Beautiful and Take Care of Texas, TexasRecyclesDay.org is a hub and clearing house for sharing recycling information, digital assets, social media posts, and more.
These assets are free to use, as presented, for local governments, businesses, non-profits, schools and other organizations who want to promote recycling right in Texas.
Assets will be available year-round, and the collection will continue to grow, but each month will feature targeted messaging based on how Texans live and recycle.
By using any assets listed on this page you agree to use them as presented
Recycling is different all over the state.
If you have access to recycling in your area,
If you're not sure if you have recycling in your area,
If you don't have access to recycling at work, home, or school,
Starting on Nov 15th and continuing throughout the next year, STAR, KTB, TCOT and our other partners will be posting and promoting Texas recycling with these shared videos, graphics, and recycling information.
By focusing all our efforts on the same message, we can make a big impact on recycling in Texas.
Featured Messaging for Nov 2021
Texas Recycles Day (TRD)
The Food Waste video below is ready to share as a Facebook, Instagram, or other Social Media post.
Recycling Right is only the first step to building the circular economy, a system
that keeps our resources circulating from consumers back to manufacturers,
creating more jobs and keeping our resources out of the landfill.
That's why we're encouraging participants to share Buy Recycled messaging for December.
The graphics below are ready to share

Tanglers & Holiday Decorations
Around the holidays, 'Tanglers' like broken Christmas lights, old toys,
and old decorations create a huge problem at recycling sorting facilities.
Tanglers get caught in the machinery and can take hours of hazardous work to fix,
Toys and holiday decorations are often made of different types of plastic and
can't be recycled easily, so they should be donated or thrown away - not put in recycling.
That's why we're encouraging participants to share 'No Tanglers' messaging for January.
Check out these Holiday Light Tips from Take Care of Texas.
Check back for a new topic and new resources each month.
