If you missed Birmingham Recycles Day in October, it doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Take that cereal box out of the trashcan and take the “I Recycle” pledge with your kids as part of America Recycles Day (ARD) November 15.ARD is a nationally-recognized initiative of Keep America Beautiful dedicated to encouraging people to recycle more at home, at work, and on the go.
