Global Recycling Day 2024

March 15, 2024

Simpson Housing strives to achieve environmental consciousness in our everyday business. Global Recycling Day serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to preserve and protect the planet for generations to come. Recycling is a powerful tool, offering sustainable solutions and paving the way towards a greener future.


Join us in embracing this important holiday not only on March 18th but working towards making recycling a part of our everyday life. Read more about the impact recycling can have and what you can do below.


Recycling – more than just a buzzword

Recycling is a vital practice with far-reaching effects on both the environment and society. By diverting waste from landfills and incinerators, recycling reduces the strain on natural resources and mitigates pollution. Every can, bottle, or piece of paper we recycle represents a step towards conservation and sustainability.


It also promotes the circular economy, where materials are reused, repurposed, and recycled in a continuous loop. This not only conserves resources but also creates economic opportunities, spurring innovation and job growth in green industries.


While the benefits of recycling are undeniable, challenges persist on both local and global scales. As Global Recycling points out, ‘… we must think again about what we throw away – seeing not waste, but opportunity.’


Challenge vs. opportunity

From technological advancements in waste sorting and processing to grassroots initiatives promoting community engagement, there is no shortage of ways to tackle recycling challenges head-on. At its core, recycling is a collective endeavor that begins with individual action. Each one of us has the power to make a difference through simple yet impactful choices in our daily lives:

  • Separate recyclables from trash. Find out how to Recycle Right® on Waste Management’s website.
  • Choose products with minimal packaging.
  • Support businesses with sustainable practices.


Education also plays a crucial role in empowering individuals to become agents of change. By raising awareness about the importance of recycling and providing resources for responsible waste management, we can inspire a culture of environmental consciousness.


Need inspiration?

Here are some of the ways Simpson is encouraging our stie teams to commemorate Global Recycling Day:

  • Recycling workshops to discuss the importance of recycling and proper recycling sorting. As well as providing information on local composting services.
  • Holding recycling drives for electronics, batteries, plastic bags, clothing.
    • If you’re local to Atlanta, Austin, Denver, LA, Portland or Seattle, check out Ridwell recycling service.
  • Holding food tastings or cooking demonstrations with local vendors for ways to reduce waste.
  • Holding food drives with our partners Move for Hunger.
  • Resident giveaways of reusable bags and seedlings – gardening season is just around the corner!


Join us in reaffirming our commitment to building a more sustainable and resilient world. By working together with determination and ingenuity, we can truly make a difference!
