Keep America Beautiful, Coca-Cola support packaging recycling program

US-based Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and the Coca-Cola foundation have announced a call for applications for the 2013 Coca-Cola/KAB Recycling Bin Grant Program.

The Coca-Cola/KAB Recycling Bin Grant Program, funded through a $300,000 grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation, is designed to expand and support recycling in communities across America.

Keep America Beautiful senior VP for recycling Brenda Pulley said recycling infrastructure is a crucial component for a comprehensive approach to increase the nation’s recycling rates.

"The Coca-Cola Company’s commitment to providing more local organizations with such a significant number of recycling bins is truly refreshing. We applaud them for being such a steadfast supporter of our recycling programs," Pulley said.

According to the companies, grant applications will be available online from 4 March 2013, which will include college and university focused grants as well as the traditional public space recycling bin grants.

Keep America Beautiful is a US nonprofit organization.
