Pepsi Dream Machines Discontinued
ICC received word this week that PepsiCo will be removing the Dream Machine Recycling kiosks on the East Peoria and North Campuses on August 11. We are awaiting word on the status of the rewards program associated with the machines and will post more information as it becomes available.
The statement from PepsiCo is below:
“On behalf of the PepsiCo Recycling team, I’d like to thank you for your ongoing support and participation in our recycling program. I’m excited to share that we have innovative changes for your campus on the horizon!
At PepsiCo, our goal is to support campus recycling efforts and increase student involvement. The Dream Machine was our first major investment in this effort, and while it has been received with excitement, the college recycling world has evolved and we at PepsiCo are evolving with it. As a result, PepsiCo Recycling is transitioning Dream Machine kiosks off of campuses throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
We are working with your PepsiCo representative to determine how we can best help you meet the specific needs and challenges of your campus. Programming may include event recycling, dorm recycling and support for campus Earth Day events.
For the 2016-2017 school year we are developing additional zero-impact initiatives and look forward to continuing to partner with your school on sustainability. Please stay tuned for more details on the new programs available to your campus.”
