New kiosks make recycling good for the pocket book
NEW YORK -- PepsiCo and Houston-based Waste Management say their new electronic kiosks in places like gas stations and stadiums will offer points toward prizes.
That's expected to entice more people to recycle bottles and cans.
Starting next month, people will be able to scan in their bottles and cans at machines that look like fancy ATMs -- to work toward rewards like half off a hotel stay.
The companies wouldn't say how many containers it will take to earn such a prize.
PepsiCo's Jeremy Cage leads the Dream Machine Recycling Initiative. Cage says the program gives consumers convenience and short-term gratification.
PepsiCo promises to donate to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities as part of the program.
