Author: BHSU Communications/Wednesday, May 7, 2014/Categories: 2014


            BHSU received 10 wire-frame recycling bins through a Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful grant. They are easily transported and will be placed around campus and made available to student organizations and other campus groups hosting events indoors and outdoors.


Black Hills State University will be able to increase its sustainability efforts after being one of only 28 four-year colleges nationwide to receive a grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful organization.

The University received 10 wire-frame recycling bins that will be placed around campus and made available to student organizations and other campus groups hosting events indoors or outdoors, according to Katie Greer, BHSU sustainability coordinator. "For the first year, we will weigh the recyclables collected from these bins to assess how they have enabled us to increase our recycling efforts."

In its ninth year, the Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful Recycling Bin Grant Program continues to recognize the significant need for public space recycling bins.

"By providing recycling bins to communities, organizations and universities, we can make a difference in increasing recycling in the United States and help overcome a main barrier of recycling &ndash convenience," said Brenda Pulley, senior vice president, recycling at Keep America Beautiful.

Grant recipients were chosen by Keep America Beautiful based on criteria including the extent of their need, recycling experience and their ability to sustain the program in the future.
