Keep America Beautiful receives $500,000 from Anheuser-Busch

­Anheuser-Busch joined Keep America Beautiful and communities across the country in recognizing America Recycles Day. To mark the occasion, Anheuser-Busch gave a $500,000 gift from the Anheuser-Busch Foundation to Keep America Beautiful to support their national recycling programs. The gift will assist the organization in their ongoing efforts to educate the public on the importance of recycling and litter prevention. In addition, the donation will fund a grant program to assist event recycling by providing approximately 3,000 recycling bins to local communities across the country.

Keep America Beautiful and its affiliates educate individuals about environmental stewardship and community improvement issues, as well as involve them in thousands of volunteer-based action programs nationwide. Keep America Beautiful will execute the recycling bin program.
