Bottle and Can Brigade: Brought to you by the Dream Machine Recycle Rally - FAQ
- What is the Dream Machine Recycle Rally™?
The Dream Machine Recycle Rally is a new school recycling program designed to educate students, grades K-12, about the importance of recycling, and incentivize them to make recycling part of their everyday lives by making it convenient and rewarding.
As part of the program, schools are encouraged to have their students collect as many non-alcoholic plastic bottles and aluminum cans as possible and bring them in so their school can earn points redeemable for rewards, such as school supplies, athletic and electronic equipment, musical instruments, and books and DVDs, through major retailers, like Amazon.com® and Bestbuy®.
In addition, for the bottles and cans recycled through the Dream Machine Recycle Rally, PepsiCo® will provide support to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, a national program offering free training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities, so that our nation’s heroes can make their own dreams come true.
The Dream Machine Recycle Rally is part of the larger Dream Machine program – a partnership between PepsiCo, Waste Management®, Greenopolis® and Keep America Beautiful® – which aims to make thousands of new recycling kiosks available in popular public venues – schools, gas stations, supermarkets, stadiums, public parks – to make it more convenient and rewarding for people to recycle on-the-go.
