KAB, Dr Pepper Award Park Recycling Bin Grants

Article-KAB, Dr Pepper Award Park Recycling Bin Grants

Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and Dr Pepper Snapple Group awarded 33 grants for recycling bins in parks across the United States.

The grants will provide 710 durable, permanent recycling bins in 23 states to be placed in a variety of park settings, according to a news release.

In its first year, the grant program between Stamford, Conn.-based KAB and Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper Group is designed to establish or expand recycling in a range of parks, from neighborhoods with playgrounds or athletic fields to regional parks with trails.

Dr Pepper committed to a one-year collaboration with KAB to make recycling more convenient for park visitors. The grant program was open to all government agencies that own or manage local, regional or state parks.

“The recycling bins placed in parks, athletic fields and other public spaces through this program address two of the biggest obstacles to recycling:  access and convenience,” said Brenda Pulley, senior vice president, recycling, for Keep America Beautiful. “The grants awarded through our partnership with Dr Pepper Snapple will make a difference in increasing on-the-go recycling in these communities.”
