Alcoa announced today that more than 50 U.S. Army National Guard facilities in Illinois, through support from the Illinois Recycling Association, will enhance their recycling programs by using recycling bins donated by Alcoa. More than 1,000 green, 22-gallon bins have been shipped from Alcoa Recycling in Tennessee to the Illinois Army National Guard State Headquarters at Camp Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois, for distribution throughout the State.
Earlier this year Alcoa Recycling and the National Recycling Coalition rolled out a major initiative designed to make recycling more accessible to people across the country. Working with the state affiliates of the NRC, Alcoa has delivered approximately 25,000 recycling bins for placement in a variety of settings where bins had not previously been available, such as schools, government and office buildings, and low-income communities.
