Life Stadium welcomes new recycling program
The PepsiCo Dream Machine recycling initiative
has partnered with Sun Life Stadium, home of the National Football
League’s Miami Dolphins, to make recycling bins and interactive
kiosks available to stadium visitors. Five Dream Machine interactive
kiosks and more than 70 static bins are now available throughout
the stadium and parking lot to capture plastic and aluminum beverage
Fans are encouraged to begin recycling plastic bottles and aluminum
cans in a Dream Machine every time they are at the stadium.
The Dream Machine recycling initiative – a multi-year collaboration
between PepsiCo, Waste Management, Greenopolis and Keep America
Beautiful – is designed to give people a convenient and rewarding
way to recycle on-the-go, and drive success against PepsiCo’s
goal of increasing the United States beverage container recycling
rate from 34 to 50 percent by 2018.
Dream Machine kiosks are computerized receptacles that operate
on the Greenopolis platform and use an innovative point system
to reward individuals for every bottle or can they recycle in
a kiosk. Users can redeem their points for discounts on entertainment,
dining and travel by visiting www.greenopolis.com.
Since the program launched in April 2010, static bins and interactive
kiosks have been placed in 14 states at high-traffic locations
such as gas stations, shopping malls, sports arenas and university
