December 8, 2016: Keep America Beautiful and The Coca-Cola Company have awarded 90 recycling bins to Alamo Colleges through the 2016 Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful Public Space Recycling Bin Grant program. As part of the grant, Alamo Colleges will order an additional 30 bins, providing a total of 120 23-gallon recycling bins. These will be placed next to trash cans and waste baskets in hallways, commons areas, workrooms and/or large classrooms at Alamo Colleges - Northwest Vista College. The goal of the program is to address one of the main barriers to recycling in public spaces by making access to recycling bins more available and convenient.
