MCTC encourages recycling with new machine, program

Aug. 22, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Mountwest Community and Technical College is encouraging recycling through the installation of a PepsiCo Dream Machine on campus. When an individual deposits empty plastic bottles and aluminum cans into the machine, they will earn points that can be redeemed for local discounts and coupons.

Additionally, each deposit supports disabled U.S. veterans through PepsiCo's support of the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, a national program offering free experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-Sept. 11 U.S. veterans with disabilities.

The machine is located on the ground floor outside the Mountwest Cafe.
