During the ceremony, Coca-Cola donated 20 recycling bins which will be used to encourage recycling at large events held in Saint Paul such as the Winter Carnival, Jazz Fest and the Flint Hills Children’s Festival.

Even before a can or bottle is dropped into the new recycling bins, these new bins have helped promote sustainability and recycling efforts. Each one of the newly donated bins is made from one of the concentrate barrels used to make Coca-Cola products.
A large part of Coca-Cola’s mission is sustainability and as a result Coca-Cola is committed to expanding community recycling programs. Since 2008, Coca-Cola has placed more than 150,000 recycling bins throughout North America and this recent donation to the Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation adds to that figure.
After the ceremony, volunteers from Coca-Cola and Saint Paul Parks and Recreation pitched in to clean up brush, garbage and other debris at Como Regional Park. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event and to all those who are helping to make Saint Paul the most livable city in America!
