POTSDAM The Alcoa Foundation is partnering with national nonprofit group Keep America Beautiful and the College & University Recycling Coalition to provide 40 recycling bins to Clarkson University.
Clarkson is one of 35 colleges and universities receiving a portion of more than 11,500 recycling bins this year.
Clarksons 40 bins will be used in the Cheel Campus Center. The program enables Clarkson to get additional recycling infrastructure where it needs it most to divert recyclables from the waste stream.
The Alcoa Foundation Recycling Bin Grant Program is an effort to help schools boost their recycling results during the eight-week RecycleMania Tournament and expand their recycling efforts throughout the year.
