Alcoa, KAB, Coalition Partner on College Recycling Bin Program
The Alcoa Foundation, Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and the College & University Recycling Coalition are partnering to provide more than 11,500 recycling bins to 35 colleges and universities in the United States.
The New York-based Alcoa Foundation said in a news release the recycling bins will help expand on-campus recycling programs and raise awareness about recycling’s environmental impact.
The bins are being distributed through the Alcoa Foundation Recycling Bin Grant Program, which was created to help schools boost their recycling results during the RecycleMania tournament and improve their recycling efforts by reaching more than 300,000 students, staff, faculty, and campus visitors throughout the year.
Alcoa is working with the Stamford, Conn.-based KAB and the Washington-based College & University Recycling Coalition to execute the program.
Each designated college will receive between 100 and 1,500 recycling bins in different on-campus settings - student housing and academic buildings, athletic facilities, administrative offices and outdoor public spaces.
