East Georgia State College will receive 25 recycling bins this summer as part of a national recycling grant made possible by Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and The Coca-Cola Foundation.
The grant award supports the work of East Georgia State College’s Recycling Task Force, an institutional initiative created in 2013 by President Bob Boehmer, for xploration of avenues to enhance the college’s recycling efforts.
The Green Team effort focuses on encouraging students, faculty, staff, and visitors on East Georgia State College’s three campuses to recycle, conserve, and sustain. Having additional bins conveniently located in all campus buildings, including Bobcat Villas student housing, provides greater visibility to promote the recycling program.
In its 9th year, the Coca-Cola/KAB Recycling Bin Grant Program is providing nearly 4,500 recycling bins to colleges and universities, nonprofits and local governments, with 35 percent of the total to be used by students in collegiate residence halls.
