BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township has proclaimed America Recycle Days for several years to support the efforts of the Environmental Service Department to reduce recyclable material going landfills.  Recycling 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 recognizing America Recycles Day  (November 10, 2018). On that day, the Environmental Services Department will host the annual 3R Bazaar, a festival promoting recycling education and expanded recycling opportunities. The event features recycling collections by local organizations, educational activities, document shredding, the Buy Recycled Boutique, and composting classes.This event will be held in cooperation with The Woodlands Farmers Market at Grogan's Mill which is envisioned to expand the reach of the message to a broader audience.
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Proclamation.
