America Recycles Day is November 15

Recycle Often. Recycle Right.SM

HOUSTON – America Recycles Day is more than a national holiday — it’s a time to talk about what Waste
Management is doing to put more items to reuse, as well as educate customers on how to recycle the right way.

For this year’s campaign, in addition to hosting community events across the country, Waste Management will
be promoting a new mantra to its recycling customers: Recycle Often. Recycle Right.SM Through this simple
message, WM will illustrate how recycling is not just about how many things you can put into a recycling container,
but more importantly, how many things you put into a container that can be recycled.

“Recycle Often. Recycle Right.SM is a key focus to improve recycling in our communities,” said Bill Caesar,
president of WM Recycling Services. “Recycling often and right is easy and good for our environment. In addition,
we want to educate residents on how to recycle the right way so that we can improve the quality of materials we intend
to sell.”

What will Waste Management be asking residents? The company is challenging communities with three objectives:

Think before you toss. Almost anything you throw away can be recycled in some way — paper, plastic, aluminum,
food waste, glass and even electronics. Check your local recycling guidelines to ensure you’re recycling right.

Get creative. Think about new uses for cans, bottles and paper. These materials are perfect for art projects.

Raise awareness. Tell your friends and family to recycle. It can become contagious. Be a recycling ambassador
and share this simple message.
