November 15, 2021

Texas Recycles Day (ARD), held on and around November 15, is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States!


Texas Roots!

Also known as National Recycling Day, this day began in 1994 after 2 employees of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality suggested the idea to the Nation Recycling Coalition. The first America Recycles Day was officially held on November 15, 1994 and had at least 40 states taking part.


What is

On Nov. 1st 2021, STAR will launch the all-new, with help from contributing organizations Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) and Take Care of Texas (TCOT). will be a hub and clearinghouse for sharing recycling information, digital assets, and social media posts, free to use for local governments, businesses, non-profits, and anyone who wants 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.

We’re setting out to make every day Texas Recycles Day by harmonizing and amplifying recycling messaging state-wide.


How can you participate? Amplify the message!

Starting on Nov 15th and continuing through the holiday season, STARKTBTCOT and our other partners will be posting and promoting Texas recycling with 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.
