America Recycles Day highlights economic benefits of recycling

Tuesday is America Recycles Day, although three Ventura County businesses will take part the following week when receiving ceremonial checks from a low-interest loan program that promotes recycling activities.

America Recycles Day, held on Nov. 15 each year, is coordinated by Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit supported mainly by major corporations and public agencies. Last year, the nonprofit helped promote nearly 3,000 related events in all 50 states.

On Monday and Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Ventura County General Services Agency is commemorating America Recycles Day with an electronic waste collection event at the service building of the Government Center, 800 S. Victoria Ave. in Ventura. DVDs and CDs will also be accepted for donation to a county library. The agency’s April event, commemorating Earth Day, collected 18 pallets full of electronic waste, equivalent to about 11,200 pounds of material.
