About the Grant

The Keep America Beautiful/Coca-Cola Public Spaces Recycling Bin Grant Program supports recycling in communities by providing bins to expand recycling opportunities in public spaces.

Grant Overview

While most Americans have access to recycling in their homes, finding recycling bins in downtown areas, athletic fields, venues and other “public spaces” can be a challenge. As we increasing live “on-the-go” lifestyles, research and common sense tell us that people are less likely to recycle if they don’t have a convenient opportunity to do it. The Keep America Beautiful/Coca-Cola Public Spaces Recycling Bin Grant Program is designed to help communities overcome this barrier by providing recycling bins in public spaces and promoting the idea that recycling is an activity we do wherever our daily routine takes us.

How It Works

The grant program awards actual recycling bins to schools, government agencies, colleges and other community organizations on a competitive basis. Interested parties complete an online application, designating the style and number of bins they would like and explaining how and where they would use the bins. Keep America Beautiful selects recipients based on the merits of their proposal according to several criteria including need and the potential to recover the greatest amount of recyclables. Keep America Beautiful then works with its vendors to arrange delivery of the bins at no cost to the grant recipients. In addition to the free bins awarded through the grant, all applicants are extended the opportunity to purchase additional recycling bins and related accessories at a special, discounted price.
