State Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago), member of the Illinois Senate Energy Committee and former official at the EPA, applauds the Mayor’s vision to make Chicago a greener and more sustainable city. Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Coca-Cola and Keep America Beautiful announced a $2.59 million grant to support the city-wide expansion of the Blue Cart Recycling Program through the purchase of 50,000 blue carts over the next five years.

“Chicago residents have been asking for city-wide recycling services for many years, and this grant will help expand blue cart recycling to all communities by the end of 2013 and pay for damaged and replacement carts for years to come,” Emanuel said. “With the help of Coca-Cola and Keep America Beautiful, Chicago will become a greener, more sustainable city.”

“There are smart, affordable things we can do to build a sustainable city,” Sandoval said. “Blue cart recycling will encourage recycling and reduce cost.”
