                Proclamation 8083 of November 14, 2006

                
America Recycles Day, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Good stewardship of the environment is a personal 
                responsibility and an important public value, and on 
                America Recycles Day, we highlight the many benefits of 
                recycling. By taking steps to reduce waste and re-use 
                materials, we can save precious natural resources, 
                enhance the beauty of our communities, and add to the 
                health and prosperity of our Nation.

                Our citizens play an important role in protecting our 
                environment, and throughout our country, we are 
                recycling, composting, and helping turn materials that 
                would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. 
                Recycling helps conserve energy, prevent greenhouse gas 
                emissions and water pollutants, and decrease the need 
                for new landfills and incinerators.

                Recognizing the importance of recycling, my 
                Administration is promoting cooperative efforts to 
                conserve and maintain our natural resources. The 
                Environmental Protection Agency is encouraging 
                businesses, industries, and communities to work 
                together to promote recycling through the Resource 
                Conservation Challenge (RCC). Partnerships between 
                government agencies, businesses, industries, and 
                private organizations help us to improve practices of 
                recycling, re-use, and waste reduction. In addition, my 
                Administration is working with businesses through the 
                Plug-In To eCycling Campaign to collect and re-use 
                computers, cell phones, and other electronics that 
                would otherwise become solid or hazardous waste. To 
                further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save 
                energy, the EPA is also partnering with manufacturers, 
                utility companies, and construction companies through 
                the Industrial Materials Recycling effort to increase 
                the safe re-use of industrial byproducts.

                Americans are united in the belief that we have an 
                obligation to be good stewards of the environment, and 
                America Recycles Day is an opportunity to recommit 
                ourselves to wisely managing our natural resources. By 
                promoting responsibility and good citizenship, we can 
                build a brighter future for our children and our 
                Nation.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 15, 2006, as 
                America Recycles Day. I call upon the people of the 
                United States to observe this day with appropriate 
                programs and activities.
