TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The city of Terre Haute will be receiving a recycling bin grant for select locations around the city.

Terre Haute will get 30 recycling bins to be placed at City Hall, the government campus, the police station and all city fire stations.

This grant is a part of a national recycling bin grant program made possible by Keep America Beautiful and The Coca-Cola Foundation.

For the 9th year this national recycling bin grant is providing nearly 4,500 recycling bins to colleges and universities, nonprofits and local governments.

“We are doing things the City has never done before to become a greener community,” said Mayor Duke Bennett. “This is another step forward in addressing the litter problem in our community.”

The recipients were chosen by Keep America Beautiful based on criteria including the extent of their need, recycling experience and their ability to sustain the program in the future.
