Organized by the Environmental Protection Agency, America Recycles Day, held November 15, recognizes the importance and impact of recycling, which has added jobs and helped to protect our environment.

Recycling and the contribution of flat glass recycling to a circular economy is a top priority, and the NGA encourages industry to be involved in recycling at all levels.

Fun Fact: Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality.

Recycling efforts of communities and business throughout the United States are key to increasing the recycling rate, which has increased by 25 percent since 1960, according to EPA. To build on the progress, EPA encourages every American to contribute by recycling right, not only on America Recycles Day, but all year long.

Read on for how the glass and fenestration industry is contributing to the recycling rate and how you can get involved in your own community.
