| Happy America Recycles Day! ♻️💚 • What are you doing to start recycling more in your community or throughout your everyday life? • Here are a few ideas: • –Follow Greenville, NC Public Works on Facebook to learn more about what can & can't be recycled at our local recycling facility. • –Instead of throwing away perfectly good household or clothing items, donate them to local resale stores like @habitat4humanitypittnc or @mysistersclosetgreenvillenc • –Avoid using plastic bags by bringing your own bag or simply declining plastic bags when you can. You can also ask for paper bags instead as a more recycle-friendly option. Also, you can take you used plastic bags back to certain local retailers to be recycled. • –Take the #BeRecycled Pledge at https://americarecyclesday.org/pledge/ & invite your friends to do the same! Local businesses can also take the pledge! • Find out more about #AmericaRecyclesDay at www.americarecyclesday.org • • • #GreenvilleNC #KeepGreenvilleBeautiful #LitterFreeNC #Reduce #Reuse #Recycle #TakeThePledge
