Durable recyclable bins are available free to government agencies, civic organizations, schools and nonprofit groups through the Public Space Recycling Bin Grant Program offered by the Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful. The deadline to apply is Oct. 7.
The Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful offer the grant program annually to increase convenience and expand opportunities for recycling.
When applying, applicants select bin style from a menu of options. If selected, bins will be shipped free of charge. The grant process is competitive. The program has a matching component, and discounted recycling bins are available for purchase. Applicants who commit to matching the program’s investment in bins will receive preference in the selection process.
Keep America Beautiful will notify successful applicants in late October. Bins will arrive in January 2017.
