Once isn’t enough, Texans should recycle every day

Once just isn’t enough in Texas. That’s the message the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Keep Texas Beautiful are sending with this year’s Texas Recycles Day theme: Texas Recycles Every Day. Texas Recycles Day (TRD), the statewide, public awareness campaign to encourage Texans to start recycling, is held annually on Nov. 15. The Texas Recycles Every Day theme encourages Texans to make recycling a part of their daily lives with one or all of the Four Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle and rebuy. Events will be held statewide from mid-October through Nov. 17 to raise awareness about how easy and important it is to recycle. Any individual, group or company can participate in or hold a Texas Recycles Day event. Last year, more than 300,000 people participated in TRD events across the state of Texas. To participate in reuse or recycling events, download publications or learn more about recycling, go to www.texasrecyclesday.org. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Keep Texas Beautiful are co- sponsoring TRD in 2003.
