Global Recycling Day is a global event celebrated annually on March 18th. As a residential and commercial recycling company, BVR is dedicated to promoting sustainable practices that help preserve the environment. Here are five ways you can celebrate Global Recycling Day and contribute to a greener future:
Educate Yourself and Your Community
Global Recycling Day is an excellent opportunity to educate yourself and your community about the importance of recycling. Take some time to learn about the materials that can be recycled and how to properly dispose of them. Share this information with your friends, family, and neighbors to raise awareness and encourage them to take action. Our BVR blog and the blog of our parent company, BIG, are great resources for this.
Host a Recycling Drive for Your Neighborhood
Organize a recycling drive in your neighborhood or community. BVR is happy to lease large scale roll-off dumpsters for your next clean out. Collect recyclable materials like paper, cardboard, plastic, and metal to fill up your roll off rental. You can also encourage others to participate by promoting the event on social media, putting up flyers, or contacting local schools and organizations.
Reduce Your Waste
Reduce the amount of waste you produce by making simple changes in your daily routine. Use reusable bags and water bottles, buy products with minimal packaging, and compost your food waste. Small actions can make a big difference in reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
Upcycle or Repurpose Items
Instead of throwing away old items, upcycle or repurpose them. Old furniture, clothes, and electronics can be transformed into something new and useful. Get creative and find new ways to use old items, or donate them to a local charity or secondhand store. Again, our blog is a great resource for guidance on this. We suggest reading THIS, and THIS.
Support Recycling Initiatives
Support local recycling initiatives and organizations that promote sustainable practices. By supporting these initiatives, you can help create a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.

Overall, Global Recycling Day is a time to reflect on our impact on the environment and take action to reduce waste and promote sustainable practices. At BVR Waste & Recycling, we are committed to supporting these efforts and encourage everyone to do their part in creating a greener future.
