Dream Machine recycling kiosks that reward users now available to improve on-the-go recycling. The more cans and bottles that are recycled in a Dream Machine, the more PepsiCo will donate to the EBV to support career training, education and job creation for post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities.
Wooster, Ohio – [September 19, 2011] – Buehler’s Fresh Foods announced today that PepsiCo Dream Machine recycling kiosks will be available at all 13 grocery locations in Ohio, providing shoppers with a convenient and rewarding way to recycle their bottles and cans while on-the-go.
The Dream Machine recycling initiative, created by PepsiCo, in partnership with Waste Management, is introducing thousands of recycling bins and kiosks at popular public locations across North America. The kiosk is a computerized receptacle that includes a personal reward system, powered by Greenopolis, which allows users to earn points for every bottle or can they recycle in the kiosk and redeem those points for local discounts on entertainment, dining and travel at www.greenopolis.com.
Additionally, the more bottles and cans people recycle in the Dream Machine kiosks at Buehler’s Fresh Foods, and in Dream Machine kiosks and bins across the nation, the more support PepsiCo will provide to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), a national program offering free experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities.
“We are so pleased that Buehler’s Fresh Foods has partnered with the Dream Machine program to make Dream Machine kiosks available to its customers,” said Jeremy Cage, Senior Vice President of Innovation and Insights at PepsiCo and head of the Dream Machine recycling initiative. “By recycling in a Dream Machine, people can earn rewards and help make a real difference for our planet and in the lives of disabled U.S. veterans.
