Coca-Cola Helping Homestead-Miami NASCAR Weekend Go Green; United Way on the 29

Coca-Cola Recycling

With the assistance of Coca-Cola Recycling, Homestead-Miami Speedway, which is hosting NASCAR’s series-crowning Ford Championship Weekend, November 14-16, has embarked on a major recycling effort. The effort includes a full sweep of the grandstands prior to the standard trash sweep. Highlights of the Homestead-Miami Speedway recycling efforts during the Championship finales:

  • Representatives sweeping the grandstands twice following the completion of each race: once to collect all recyclable bottles and cans, and a second time to remove trash
  • Recycling bins (400-plus) placed throughout the concourse and hospitality areas
  • Representatives visiting RV camping areas twice daily throughout Ford Championship Weekend to collect reusable materials
  • A large Coca-Cola Recycling mobile marketing vehicle placed prominently in midwaypavilion area to educate and inform race fans of the program and its benefits, as well as to reward fans with incentives for recycling participation
  • After collecting the beverage containers, Coca-Cola will divert the materials for reuse into new bottles, cans and other uses….even the “RPET” line of recycled clothing
