Meeting Date: 10/26/2016  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a proclamation in support of American Recycles Day;
FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no budget impact related to the proclamation. America Recycles Day is an ongoing environmental education program provided through the Environmental Services Division
BACKGROUND:
2016 will mark the 19th annual observance of America Recycles Day which has its origins in Texas Recycles Day. The Woodlands Township’s Environmental Services Division has utilized this date to promote  public environmental education for many years through programs and events that have included the Buy Recycled Boutique which is produced in partnership with The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N.

Recycling is crucial as it saves precious energy, conserves valuable natural resources, protects the environment, reduces toxic air emissions and landfill needs, creates jobs and has a positive economic impact.  Overall, The Woodlands continues to have a high degree of participation in recycling programs due in part to public education efforts including proclaiming a day (November 12, 2016) American Recycles Day (Attachment A).  On that day, the Environmental Services Division will host the annual 3R Bazaar, and one feature of the event is the Buy Recycled Boutique which features unique and trendy items made from recycled materials. 
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Proclamation
