Recycling is part of everyday life.

But only half of bottles, cans, and paper are recycled.

LET’S MAKE A CHANGE

IT’S EASY

Recycling is an easy way to create a positive impact.

IT’S IMPORTANT

Resource scarcity, tax dollars, environmental health and safety. There are many reasons to recycle. Pick one.

IT’S TIME TO ACT

Homes are generating more and more waste. Each year, 22M tons of recyclables are going unrecovered from US homes. It’s a compounding problem and recycling is a compounding solution. Act now. Take the pledge.
