PepsiCo, Walmart And Sam’s Club Team Up To Make Recycling Easy

As recycling rates in the U.S. continue to decline, PepsiCo Beverages North America, Walmart and Sam’s Club are piloting a new program to inspire recycling awareness and participation in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

At two Walmart and two Sam’s Club locations, shoppers can bring their beverage containers to be properly recycled from Thursday to Sunday and they’ll be incentivized to participate by earning rewards and prizes.

Currently, Oklahoma has one mixed recycling facility for its nearly 4 million residents. Providing on-site recycling at these stores will be the first step in building out a decentralized recycling network, which makes recycling more accessible for all Oklahomans.

The collection of these recyclable materials and plastic bottles become part of a “closed loop,” maximizing recycling convenience and increasing access to clean rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate). This will ultimately support a circular economy and help advance the shared mission of PepsiCo, Sam’s Club and Walmart to achieve 100 percent recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.

Participating store locations:

  • Sam’s Tulsa Hills (7757 S. Olympia) Store No. 4839;
  • Sam’s Sheridan (4420 S. Sheridan) Store No. 8263;
  • Walmart 71st Memorial (6625 S. Memorial Dr.) Store No: 894; and
  • Walmart 111th & Memorial (10938 S. Memorial Dr). Store No: 1597.

Sam’s Club and Walmart are headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas.
