America Recycles Day at OPES!

Pledge to Recycle!

"If you want grown-ups to recycle, just tell their kids the importance of recycling, and they'll be all over it." -Bill Nye, the Science Guy

What is America Recycles Day?

America Recycles Day, sponsored by Keep America Beautiful and others, is designed to raise awareness to the importance of recycling and encourage more Americans to get involved. Orchard Park will celebrate our commitment to recycling the week of November 10th. Students and teachers will fill out a ARD pledge card to make a commitment to recycling to win prizes from York County Recycling.

Please see link to learn more about recycling.
