A major grant will help Indianapolis "go green" during the 2012 Super Bowl. The Alcoa Foundation is giving the Indiana Recycling Coalition $125,000 to help football fans recycle during their visit for the big game.

Most of the money will go toward recycling bins that will be placed at public venues, college athletic locations, public golf courses and state and city parks.

"We know that there are going to be tens and tens of thousands of people merging in downtown Indianapolis. We know that when folks are out and about, that's when they have the sort of container that can be recycled. In particular, cans," said Carey Hamilton with the Indiana Recycling Coalition.

The most recycled consumer material on Earth is the aluminum beverage can. A used can will become a brand new can within 60 days of recycling.
