                Proclamation 8203 of November 15, 2007

                
America Recycles Day, 2007

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                As citizens of this great Nation, we have a 
                responsibility to practice good environmental 
                stewardship. On America Recycles Day, we underscore our 
                commitment to conserving our resources by recycling.

                Through curbside collections and drop-off facilities, 
                we are turning waste materials--including plastic, 
                glass, aluminum cans, paper, tires, batteries, and 
                building materials--into valuable resources. Recycling 
                is one of our Nation's most successful environmental 
                initiatives, and my Administration is working to 
                increase opportunities for our citizens, communities, 
                and businesses to recycle. The Resource Conservation 
                Challenge, created by the Environmental Protection 
                Agency, encourages public and private partnerships to 
                promote recycling. Through Plug-In To eCycling, we are 
                helping reduce waste by providing consumers with 
                information on how and where they can donate or safely 
                recycle old electronics. Working together, we can 
                conserve valuable resources and energy by managing 
                materials more efficiently.

                On America Recycles Day and throughout the year, I 
                encourage all Americans to recycle appropriate 
                materials and products. By recycling, reducing 
                greenhouse gas emissions, and conserving energy, we can 
                help build a healthier environment for everyone.

                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, 2007, as 
                America Recycles Day. I call upon the people of the 
                United States to observe this day with appropriate 
                programs and activities.

                States of America the two hundred and thirty-second.
