Our Mission

America Recycles Day is November 15
November 15 is America Recycles Day - an opportunity to reflect on the Army Reserve's commitment to recycling and how we all play a part in combating challenges which impede our waste reduction and diversion efforts. This year, we focus on waste contamination, and how making simple changes to your recycling habits supports America's increased need to process recyclable materials on the home front.
