FCA, Pepsi recycle more

by David Zatz on

On Veteran’s Day, the Belvidere Assembly Plant and PepsiCo Recycling will start making recycling more convenient while supporting disabled U.S. veterans.

New recycling bins in high traffic areas collect materials which will be sold with the proceeds going through PepsiCo Recycling to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), which provides training in entrepreneurship and small businesses to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities. PepsiCo has donated $1.5 million to EBV since 2010.

Eight percent of the plant workers are veterans. FCA US has also joined forces with the Prestige Group in Michigan to help returning war veterans and active-duty military personnel get internship positions while they finish their degrees.

The Belvidere plant, an hour west of Chicago, built its first car in 1964.
