MillerCoors announces that it is joining 44 leading brands, retailers and organizations to support The Recycling Partnership and its mission to create a sustainable recycling system in the U.S. that creates more circular economy jobs, more material recovery and stronger, more equitable communities.
With support from its funding partners, The Recycling Partnership has helped 50 million households – more than a quarter of the U.S. population – recycle more and recycle better. Using a unique public-private partnership model, The Recycling Partnership has invested more than $43 million in recycling infrastructure, including 445,000 new recycling carts and catalyzed $6 million in statewide investment. By providing communities with critical infrastructure grants, expert assistance and free best-in-class tools and data, The Recycling Partnership is improving recycling in communities all across the U.S.
“A long-time sustainability leader, MillerCoors sets a high bar on what it means to ensure a healthier future,” said Keefe Harrison, CEO of The Recycling Partnership.
“We are thrilled to have MillerCoors join The Partnership and help us scale measurable recycling system change across the country to create a better economy, stronger communities and a healthier planet for all.”
Whether helping provide convenient access to recycling for the more than 50 percent of Americans who still need it to working with communities coast to coast to decrease waste and capture more quality tons at the cart to empowering a strong peer-to-peer network to pursing policy, The Recycling Partnership is driving real system change.
”We are incredibly proud to partner with The Recycling Partnership and participate in efforts to transform and improve recycling throughout America,” said Diane Wagner, manager of sustainable development for MillerCoors. “Executing the best recycling and sustainable practices has always been a priority for our company, so this partnership is a natural fit and we’re excited about what we can accomplish together in the name of bettering our environment.”
