The Stamford, Conn.-based KAB said in a news release that the agreement with the Plano, Texas-based Dr Pepper extends for a second year the DPS/KAB Park Recycling Grant Program, which funds the placement of recycling bins within city, regional and state public parks across the United States.
The program is accepting applications for recycling bin grants on its website, irecycleonthego.wordpress.com. In addition to Keep America Beautiful affiliates, those eligible to apply are state and local government agencies that deal with recycling activities in local, regional and state parks.
In the grant program’s inaugural year it provided more than 700 recycling bins for placement in various park settings, including athletic fields, neighborhood parks, walking trails and beach locations. In all, the program awarded 33 grants to local and state governments in 23 states.
