Connecticut Recycles Day is a recycling awareness day that takes place on November 15th each year. This day is set aside to recognize and celebrate the positive impact of reducing, reusing, recycling, composting and closing the recycling loop in our communities, schools, businesses and state agencies.  You can use this day at your workplace, school, or in your home to bring awareness to recycling and commit to improving your recycling program.

Ideas for Celebrating CT Recycles Day

  • Coordinate a "Drive" to Collect an Item from the Waste Stream (i.e. cell phones for soldiers).
  • Expand Your Recycling Program (add more materials to recycle or try to recover more of what you already collect).
  • Start a "Green Team" in your office, school, or house of worship.
  • Clean Your Room/House/Office and donate items to a local charity.
  • Coordinate a community tag sale.
  • Organize a ‘swap’ party with friends: clothing, toys, books or kitchenware.
  • Coordinate a book collection event and donate books to schools, libraries or other facilities.
  • Visit a recycling center to learn where your recyclables go.
