America Recycles Day 2010

America Recycles Day (ARD), HELD YEARLY on November 15, is an opportunity for communities, organizations and schools to participate in a National recycling day.

Defiance County Environmental Services contacted other County departments to participate in the annual ARD event by recycling all office paper. Defiance County Environmental Services collected over 2700# of shredded and regular office paper from the following participants: Records, Defiance County Commissioners, Dog Warden, Clerk of Courts, Child Support Agency and the Defiance County Prosecutors office.

America Recycles Day (ARD) information was also distributed to local schools. Fairview Elementary offered a poster contest for America Recycles Day. Fairview Elementary had 201 students participate in the contest with 9 winners. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places were awarded from each grade; kindergarten-1st, 2nd – 3rd, and 4th – 5th. Kim Beek, teacher at Fairview Elementary informed me that the student’s posters adorned the halls and also were posted on the school district website.
