Celebrate America Recycles Day

November 15th is America Recycles Day, and to celebrate UK Recycling is asking students, faculty, and staff members to pledge to recycle more.

Here’s how to participate: you can stop by one of three tabling events and take the pledge by getting your picture taken with the  #recycleblue letters and posting it on a social media.
Here’s where to find the tabling events:
Tuesday November 14, 10 am-2 pm, in front of Bowman’s Den
Wednesday November 15, 10 am-2 pm, by Mining and Minerals building
Thursday November 16, 10 am-2 pm, in front of The 90

Another way to participate is to visit the UK Recycling webpage and take the online pledge.

Lastly, you can take a photo of yourself recycling on campus and post it on social media using our hashtag #recycleblue. Send a copy of it to

Everyone that takes the pledge gets a UK Recycling t-shirt! If you take the online pledge, be sure to leave your building and room number so we can easily get your shirt to you.
