Hard Hat Recycling Challenge

Accepting Pledges Now Through November 10!

AGC has renewed its commitment to holding an annual Hard Hat Recycling Challenge as part of America Recycles Day this November 15th.   Will you accept the challenge?

Here is how it works.  America Recycles Day is on Saturday, Nov. 15.  Make your pledge to AGC by (or before) Monday, Nov. 10, so that we know which members to highlight.  Start collecting your hard hats for recycling, then circle back to AGC by Nov. 17 with information on how many hard hats your company collected for recycling.  Be sure to take some photographs of your efforts, as AGC will be highlighting these efforts through various news outlets.  AGC will identify those members who have pledged to participate in the challenge as part of the notices surrounding America Recycles Day.  Afterwards, AGC will report on the hard hats recycled and further highlight members’ recycling efforts.

  1. Make the pledge to AGC by November 10.  Send an email to Kelly Roepke-Orth at .  After you have pledged, AGC has a Recycling Challenge imager available (HERE) you can use to make signs for your office and jobsites or use the AGC NM graphic in an email and through your social media mediums.
  2. AGC NM and Cintas have set up a collection bin located in the AGC Office - get the word out to your coworkers.  This is a great time for a safety inspection of your hard hats! 
  3. Send pictures and information on how many hard hats your company has recycled to Kelly Roepke-Orth at by November 17.  AGC of America will further showcase your efforts.
