Now in its second year, the DPS/KAB Park Recycling Grant Program funds the placement of recycling bins within city, regional and state public parks across the nation. Now through Feb. 11, 2014, the program is accepting applications for recycling bin grants on its website, http://irecycleonthego.wordpress.com/. In addition to Keep America Beautiful affiliates, those eligible to apply are state and local government agencies that deal with recycling activities in local, regional and state parks.
“Enjoying a day at the park is an even better experience when there are recycling bins in convenient locations,” says Vicki Draughn, vice president of corporate affairs at DPS. “Our continued partnership with Keep America Beautiful is an important part of our commitment to foster physically active, engaged and sustainable communities.”
