Take the “I recycle” pledge in Prince William County on Nov. 15 and possibly win a prize

On Wednesday, November 15 Prince William County Solid Waste staff and Keep Prince William Beautiful volunteers will host several “I Recycle” pledge events, joining thousands of local organizers holding recycling events across the country to celebrate America Recycles Day (ARD), a national initiative of Keep America Beautiful.

On Wednesday, November 15, Keep Prince William Beautiful volunteers and staff of Prince William County Solid Waste Division will be at the Chinn Park Library, the McCoart Administration building and the Development Services building from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On November 16, volunteers will also be at Bull Run Regional Library.

There will be recycling education activities and prizes. Additionally, residents can take the “I Recycle” pledge and enter a drawing to win regional prizes. Prizes include:  $300 REI gift card and $500 grant to a local school’s K-12 environmental program.

“Every year in mid-October we host a large recycling education event at the Prince William County landfill in support of America Recycles Day, but we also host these smaller events on November 15 to keep the importance of recycling and buying recycled products on everyone’s mind,” Deborah Campbell, Communications Specialist for the Solid Waste Division, was quoted as saying in a news release.

Prince William area residents can sign the recycling pledge at the library, or visit https://americarecyclesday.org/pledge/ and take the pledge on line by November 20.  “For the past five years, a Prince William entrant has won a regional prize. In 2016, a Henderson Elementary School student won the K-12 prize!,” Campbell stated.
