Recycle on the Go at the National Cherry Blossom Festival
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Park Service are teaming up to collect recyclables at this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival. Festival attendees will be encouraged to recycle their bottles and cans in recycling bins on the National Mall as part of EPA’s Recycle on the Go program.
Last year’s Cherry Blossom Festival recycling efforts collected more than 20,000 bottles and cans and 500 pounds of corrugated cardboard.
Recycle on the Go is one of a variety of approaches EPA is using to help our nation reach its 35 percent national recycling goal.
About one million people are expected to attend this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival.
