Texas Recycles Day is a statewide public awareness campaign that aims to educate Texans on the environmental and economic benefits of waste reduction and recycling. Its success served as the model for the development of America Recycles Day.

Texas Recycles Day is working in cooperation with the State of Texas Alliance for Recycling (STAR) to give all Texas communities access to America Recycles Day materials and resources.

Keep Carrollton Beautiful is participating by holding this recycling event. For more information about volunteering, contact Keep Carrollton Beautiful through email,, or visit

Items we are set to collect (check back for updates):

  • Yarn (for knitters at the Senior Center who give to nearby hospitals)
  • Car batteries and old tires (accepted at Firestone locations)
  • Light bulbs and regular batteries
  • Electronics (TVs smaller than 21 in.)
  • Books
  • Gently used clothes and shoes

Goodwill will be on hand to collect things that don’t fall into the above categories.

Would your group like to collect something that our citizens have? Let us know and we will set up a table for you to collect.
