Coca-Cola, Keep America Beautiful Accepting Applications For Recycling Bin Grants

Monday November 26th, 2018
Keep America Beautiful and the Coca-Cola Foundation are accepting applications for their Public Spaces Recycling Bin Grants. The deadline for applications is December 30.
Eligible recipients include government agencies, colleges and universities, civic organizations, and public and local nonprofit groups throughout the United States.
Keep America Beautiful will award the grants in mid-January 2019 and make arrangements with suppliers to deliver recycling bins directly to the recipients in the first quarter of 2019.
"Since its inception in 2007, the grant program has made impressive strides toward expanding recycling in public spaces," says Randy Hartmann, senior director of affiliate operations for Keep America Beautiful. "Through these grants, The Coca-Cola Foundation is reducing two of the primary barriers for on-the-go recycling – accessibility and convenience."
The program will distribute 4,500 recycling bins in public space locations ranging from athletic fields to fairs and festivals to downtown streetscapes and playgrounds and other on-the-go settings.
The program is funded through a $350,000 grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation to Keep America Beautiful, which in turn awards recycling bins through a competitive, merit-based application process.
