Recycling starts with you

What individual actions can you take to reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle in all aspects of your life?

Individual action is the focus of this year’s America Recycles Day.

America Recycles Day is dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States.

PSE&G has a long history of promoting recycling at company locations and job sites. In fact, last year the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection recognized PSE&G for Outstanding Achievement in Recycling.

Such acknowledgement comes for good reason. As part of our Clean Energy Future energy efficiency program, PSE&G helped customers recycle more than 1,600 older, inefficient appliances. That program continues to provide customers an opportunity to take advantage of attractive rebates while making a meaningful impact on our environment.

PSE&G Environmental Projects and Services (EPS) has created a Waste Sustainability Team that is focused on identifying sustainable alternatives to landfills and incineration. EPS also formed a recycling team dedicated to championing grassroots efforts to promote and improve recycling rates. In 2022, EPS will launch a Recycling Performance Program to help drive the success of ongoing targeted initiatives.

Looking for a way to take individual action on America Recycles Day? Why not take the #BeRecycled pledge – a promise to actively choose to live a sustainable lifestyle by:

  1. Recycling at home, work, school and on the go;
  2. Buying products made with recycled content; and
  3. Educating and encouraging friends, family and neighbors to take the #BeRecycled pledge
