Recycling is the No. 1 action we can take for the environment, the economy, and our future on this planet.

about the campaign

Inspired by Terracycle’s mission, Pivot has joined forces with Recycle Across America to create Recycle Right, a campaign focused on helping individuals, businesses, and communities improve recycling levels to create a more sustainable future. Recycle Across America has identified a simple solution to increase recycling levels in the U.S. — standardized labels on recycling bins, which make it easy for people to recycle more and recycle right. By increasing recycling levels, we can create jobs, save energy, and improve the health and well-being of our planet.

Recycle Right At Work

Order Standardized Labels

You recycle at home, but did you know less than 10% of businesses recycle? Expand your impact and get your office recycling right by implementing Recycle Across America’s standardized recycling labels, which have increased recycling levels by over 50% at some of the most notable organizations in the world. Organizations and schools can significantly decrease expenses by diverting more materials into recycling bins and out of landfill-bound trash cans.

Order Labels Here

Take a moment to read the label on the bin.

Take a second to read the label on the recycling bin.  Hopefully it provides enough information to guide you before you toss.

ALWAYS recycle the basics - they're GOLD.

Always recycle soda cans, plastic bottles (identified with a #1 or #2 on the bottom), glass jars and bottles, and cardboard when you have an appropriate bin in site.

Throw food soiled paper in the compost bin or trash. 

Any paper that is used for food or beverage - such as a paper napkin or towel should be either composted or be thrown in the trash.

Check the number identifier on plastic waste.

Just because there's a chasing arrow on plastic doesn't mean that it can be recycled everywhere.   Plastic bottles and jugs with necks are the primary plastics #1-2 that can be recycled everywhere, while plastics #3-7 are not always recyclable even though they display a chasing arrow. 

When in doubt, throw it out.

If you're holding something and you're wondering if it can or can't be recycled such as your coffee cup with plastic lid, or a candy wrapper or straw or plastic cap  --  and there isn't enough information on the recycling bin to say that those are acceptable, than throw them in the trash.

Recycle Across America (RAA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which has developed the first and only society-wide standardized labeling system for recycling bins to help eliminate the public confusion surrounding recycling.  RAA and the standardized labels have been identified as a world-changing solution by Ashoka Global Innovators for the Public and have been referred to as "... one of the top environmental fixes taking root today" by the New York Times. This initiative represents what can be accomplished when simple solutions are implemented making it easier for society to act on their good intentions.
