Florida's America Recycles Day 2015 Main Page

America Recycles Day is annually held on November 15. It is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Communities across Florida have participated in America Recycles Day to promote environmental citizenship and pledge to be better environmental stewards.


Florida Recycles Day

Florida Recycles Day is annually held at the Florida Capitol and is hosted by the Florida Recycling Partnership. During the event held on January 11, 2017, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection presented five Recycling Recognition Awards to Desoto Trail Elementary School, Northrop Grumman and Skanska USA

Florida K-12 Students

Keep America Beautiful hosts Recycle-Bowl, a nationwide recycling competition for elementary-, middle- and high-school students. Recycle-Bowl provides students with a fun, interactive way to learn about waste reduction and environmental responsibility through in-school recycling.


Florida Colleges and Universities

Game Day Challenge is a friendly competition for colleges and universities to promote waste reduction at their football games. During the challenge, colleges and universities implement waste reduction programs during home football games. Schools track and report waste reductions and disposal data that is used to rank the schools. This program is made possible through a partnership of Keep America Beautiful, College and University Recycling Coalition, RecycleMania and EPA's WasteWise Program. For more information, visit
