Dream Machines at Three Reasor's Locations Among Top Ten in the Nation

Three of the PepsiCo Dream Machine recycling kiosks at Reasor's stores were among the top ten best performing Dream Machines in the nation for the month of December 2011, in terms of the number of bottles and cans recycled.

The Sapulpa, Jenks, and Broken Arrow 71st & Lynn Lane Reasor's stores were each awarded certificates acknowledging the commitment to recycling excellence and recognized as a Top Ten Dream Machine in the nation.

Reasor's was the first grocery chain in the nation to offer the Dream Machine at each of its 15 locations and two convenience stores.

"I would like to extend my congratulations for the outstanding commitment that you have made to the environment and to the Dream Machine recycling program," said Chris Weber, director of sustainability, PepsiCo, in a statement. "The recycling efforts at your locations are helping to make a real difference for our planet and our U.S. veterans with disabilities."

The Dream Machine recycling initiative created by PepsiCo in collaboration with Waste Management, and powered by Greenopolis, is designed around PepsiCo's goal to increase the U.S. beverage container recycling rate to 50 percent by 2018. The program is currently introducing recycling kiosks and static bins at popular public locations across the U.S.

PepsiCo is also using the program to give aid to America's veterans. Since the launch of the Dream Machine program in April 2010, PepsiCo has donated $1 million 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 veterans with disabilities.
