The annual America Recycles Day, sponsored by the Bristol Chamber of Commerce’s Keep Bristol Beautiful program, will take place Saturday, Nov. 15.

Held in conjunction with Bristol Virginia’s Public Works Department, the event, which takes place from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the old Goody’s building parking lot on Euclid Ave., offers free electronic waste recycling to all local residents and free Household Hazardous Waste Disposal for residents of Bristol, Va. Household Hazardous Waste will be accepted from those who don’t live in Bristol, Va. for a nominal fee.

Old tires, up to four per vehicle, also will be accepted, along with clear green and brown glass.

America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful program, is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States.

Every year, on or around Nov. 15, event organizers educate neighbors, friends and colleagues about recycling through the thousands of events that take place.

Founded in 1997, America Recycles Day is an opportunity to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.

In 2013, more than 2,000 events were held across the United States with over 2 million participants and approximately 16,300 organizations taking part.

The Keep Bristol Beautiful America Recycles Day is sponsored by Tennessee Valley Authority, Food City, the Bristol Herald Courier, the city of Bristol, Va., and the Bristol Chamber of Commerce.
