Coca-Cola and KAB help support recycling programs
Recycling programs in 82 towns and cities
throughout the country received a significant boost to their
local recycling efforts when Keep America Beautiful and The Coca-Cola
Company announced the recipients of the spring 2010 Recycling
Bin Grant program. Chosen from over 1,700 applications submitted,
the 82 grant recipients represent a cross section of community
groups, local governments, colleges and nonprofit organizations
across the country. Grant recipients receive recycling bins from
a pre-set list of options.
Grants were awarded for a diverse range of settings from 37 states,
including 14 colleges and universities, 32 municipalities and
other local government entities, 20 K-12 schools, 17 nonprofit
organizations, and additional community groups and Native American
tribes. Recipients were chosen by KAB based on a number of criteria,
including where bins are likely to have the most impact on recovering
beverage containers from the waste stream, ability of recipients
to sustain their program in the future and intention to support
collection programs with recycling education and promotion. The
Bin Grant is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company and is designed
to promote and support community recycling in the United States.
The Bin Grant Program provides recycling
bins directly to recipients and leverages the purchasing power
and recycling expertise of KAB.
