Coca-Cola partners to provide recycling carts in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Coca-Cola Bottling Company (Philly Coke) has created a special partnership with RecycleBank that will positively affect Philadelphians and Philly Coke employees in an effort to garner a greater commitment to sustainability and recycling within the city. Together, their goal is to provide greater opportunity for both community members and employees who live within the region to recycle more, reduce waste and live positively while doing it.

Since 2006, Coca-Cola has been a valuable partner to RecycleBank, a meaningful rewards program that motivates people to recycle and take greener actions by rewarding them for their efforts.

Philly Coke is sponsoring 1,200 Coca-Cola branded recycling carts to encourage Philadelphia residents to recycle much more curbside. These carts will be distributed to families in need in each of the six sanitation districts in which RecycleBank offers curbside rewards for recycling in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia.

Philly Coke and RecycleBank are also launching the first ever “Points for Employees” Program, designed to encourage all Philly Coke employees to recycle more and make greener lifestyle choices. Through this inaugural program, all Philly Coke Employees will earn bonus RecycleBank Points for registering and taking steps for greener actions with RecycleBank.

Additionally, RecycleBank, in conjunction with Philly Coke, will create a special sweepstakes promotion for Philadelphia metro region residents offering valuable prizes and rewards. The sweepstakes will be promoted to members in the Philadelphia metro region area via RecycleBank’s website.
