Dallas-recyclingSince 1997, people across the country have come together on November 15 to celebrate America Recycles Day. This is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to the promotion of recycling — a day to educate and motivate our neighbors, friends and community leaders about what can be achieved when we all work together. In Dallas, the Fall Recycling Round-up is scheduled at two locations on America Recycles Day. This presents a great opportunity for locals to “round up” all of their perceived junk and drop it off to ensure that it is responsibly recycled. If you are in the Dallas area on November 15, be sure to make the time to drop off!
