The Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper is donating $300,000 to the Stamford, Conn.-based KAB as part of the one-year collaboration to fund the placement of recycling bins in city, regional and state public parks to give visitors greater access to recycling, according to a news release.
The DPS/KAB Public Park Recycling Grant program is open to governments or organizations that help maintain and/or support public state, regional and city parks. Grant applications will be available online through April 26. Interested parties can visit irecycleonthego.wordpress.com to apply.
