PepsiCo Dream Machines Provide Convenient and Rewarding Recycling Option During Taste of Charlotte

You may have seen the PepsiCo Dream Machine kiosks at your local,
Charlotte-area Rite Aid store. Starting Friday, June 10, we invite you
to recycle your plastic bottles and aluminum cans in Dream Machine
kiosks or bins along Tryon street during the Taste of Charlotte food
festival. PepsiCo's Dream Machine is the official recycling partner
for the event, and PepsiCo will have exciting giveaways and
opportunities for you to interact with Dream Machines at the PepsiCo
Dream Machine tent located at Booth #97 on Tryon Street, near the
corner of Trade Street.

This is more than just recycling – the Dream Machine recycling
initiative is rewarding for the on-the-go consumer, our planet, and
post-9/11 veterans with disabilities.

Dream Machine bins and kiosks will be placed throughout Tryon Street
for convenient, on-the-go recycling. When you recycle your plastic
bottles and aluminum cans in a Dream Machine, you can:
o Earn personal reward points, redeemable for local discounts
(kiosks only);
o Support post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities; and
o Help make our planet a little greener.

For all the bottles and cans recycled through the Dream Machine
program, PepsiCo will provide support to the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp
for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), a national program offering free
education in entrepreneurship and small business management to
post-9/11 U.S. veterans with disabilities

When: Friday, June 10, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Saturday, June 11, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Sunday, June 12, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
