Did you know you can recycle 5 gallon plastic buckets in your household recycling bin in Deschutes County? Or that there are 7 locations you can bring your rechargeable batteries after you’ve charged the life out of them? America Recycles Day is a day to pledge to learn, act and share:
Learn. I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community. Deschutes County residents check what’s recycled curbside or use our Find A Recycler tab to discover where to recycle over 50 items.
Act. Reduce my personal waste by recycling. Within the next month, I will recycle more.
Share. In the next month, I will encourage one family member or one friend to take the pledge.
As an incentive to explore our Find A Recycler database, take our quick America Recycles Day quiz to challenge your recycling savvy, and be entered to win a Sara Bella* upcycled tote bag! The quiz will be up through the end of the month. Two winners will be chosen at random from all correct responses on December 2nd.
