The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation, with the help of Keep America Beautiful, The Recycling Partnership and The Closed Loop Fund, will donate their 1 millionth recycling bin this month.
For the past 10 years, The Coca-Cola Foundation has supported an annual The Coca-Cola Foundation/Keep America Beautiful Public Space Recycling grant program, which has donated public space recycling bins to more than 1,000 communities across the country.
The Coca-Cola Company and The Coca-Cola Foundation also have awarded grants to The Closed Loop Fund and The Recycling Partnership to help expand curbside recycling and provide recycling education to residents in more than 500 communities. Through these combined efforts more than 730 million pounds of recyclables have been diverted from landfills.
The latest round of bin grants support recycling in a variety of public spaces across the country, from festival locations to city parks to university campuses to downtown streets.
