America Recycles Day* is a national initiative to promote environmentally sustainable practices and purchasing. Similar to the goals outlined in the Commonwealth’s Environmentally Preferable Products Procurement Program, the day prompts consumers to learn about and take advantage of recycling opportunities and to reduce waste by buying products made with recycled content.

  • tools to develop a recycling program in your facility — including on-site visits by awarded contract vendors who will assess your organization’s needs, make cost-effective recommendations, and provide employee training;
  • thousands of Environmentally Preferred Products. Get a complete list at mass.gov/epp in the Environmentally Preferable Products and Services Guide;
  • the ability to recycle a vast array of items. Link to our Recycling Possibilities flyer.

*America Recycles Day is a national initiative of Keep America Beautiful. Learn more and Take the Pledge.
