Grant Program Awards Recycling Containers to Montana Tech

Montana Tech will get a boost to their recycling efforts this summer, thanks to the Coca-Cola Bin Grant Program, made possible by support from The Coca-Cola Foundation. Montana Tech will receive a total of 32 recycling bins designed specifically for placement around campus.

“Through our partnership with Keep America Beautiful, the Coca-Cola Bin Grant Program supports local community recycling efforts across the United States," said Lori George Billingsley, Vice President of Community Relations for Coca-Cola Refreshments. “We are pleased that these bins being placed on the campus of Montana Tech will provide additional opportunities for people to recycle.”

Recipients were chosen by Keep America Beautiful based on a number of criteria including level of need, recycling experience, and the ability of applicants to sustain their program in the future.

“The Montana Tech Recycling Committee and campus community are thrilled about winning the grant,” said Shelley Reed, chair of the Montana Tech Recycling Committee. “We have had the goal of placing recycling bins all across campus for years, but budget restrictions prevented us from doing that. Now with the help of KAB and Coca Cola and their grant program, we will finally meet our goals. Without a doubt, recycling at Montana Tech will increase through the use of the granted products. Our 15-year recycling program has finally evolved from labeled cardboard boxes to actual recycling bins that will take us into the future of sustainability. Thank you KAB and Coca Cola.”

“Providing infrastructure for people to recycle on-the-go in our communities is a key component of making recycling a natural thing to do,” said Matthew M. McKenna, president and CEO, Keep America Beautiful. “We are truly grateful for Coca Cola’s support and commitment to recycling, which is so well demonstrated by the Coca-Cola Bin Grant Program.”

The Bin Grant Program awards recycling bins directly to recipients and leverages volume buying discounts. In its seven years of operation, the Bin Grant Program has placed 29,000 recycling bins in over 500 communities in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
