HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (May 13, 2021) — The Heritage Classic Foundation team worked with Coca-Cola Consolidated during the 2021 RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing to successfully enhance the PGA TOUR golf tournament’s can and bottle recycling program.
Volunteers from the Bluffton High School Football team collected more than 45 yards of aluminum and polyethylene terephthalate plastic (PET) during the tournament held April 12-18 over the Harbour Town Golf Links, on Hilton Head Island. Thanks to a partnership with Clemson University and Coca-Cola Consolidated, the university will process those used bottles and cans so they can be made into new bottles and cans.
“Part of our commitment to our communities is a commitment to sustainability,” said W. Todd Marty, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Sustainability at Coca-Cola Consolidated. “Through our Refresh, Recycle, Renew campaign we are educating and engaging consumers through asset partners like RBC Heritage to launch innovative programs to capture more bottles and cans to be recycled.”
The Heritage Classic Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is dedicated to supporting educational and charitable initiatives to enhance quality of life and economic vitality by hosting the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR golf tournament.
