Keep Australia Beautiful is able to offer financial assistance for local communities wishing to improve beverage container recycling. This financial assistance is made possible thanks to a Coca-Cola Foundation Community Recycling Grant.
In larger communities this may mean infrastructure for events or for special venues such as large retail centres or education centres. In smaller communities, it may mean assistance with transport or processing to overcome remote location or dispersed population. The focus is on:
. recycling away from home
. practical projects that leave a legacy
. projects that don’t duplicate existing recycling activities
. projects that result in measurable volumes of recycled materials
To apply visit the Keep Australia Beautiful National website and fill in the online application form or contact Keep Australia Beautiful National Association.
For more information on the grants, please contact Geoff Marsh at email@example.com or 0488 101 585.

Coca-Cola Amatil Tasmania is pleased to add its support to Keep Australia Beautiful Tasmania’s initiatives under the National Bin Network Pilot program. This Industry funded program would see a commitment of $100M over 5 years to address litter reduction and increased recycling across the nation.
As a member of the Australian Food and Grocery Council which is funding this pilot together with one in Northern Territory, CCA are convinced that partnerships with Industry, Local Government, community, conservation and environment groups plus individuals are the most effective methods to tackle litter reductions, clean ups and increase recycling especially the ‘away from home’ category. The three facetted approach being undertaken by KABTAS addresses Education /Awareness, Infrastructure and Enforcement which have proven to be successful in other settings.
“CCA Tasmania is pursuing ways with KABTAS to be involved in initiatives to improve this wonderful State” said John Szabados, Tasmania Region Manager.
