The clatter of empty Pepsi-Cola cans falling on concrete outside a convenience store in Martinsburg on Monday signaled the formal debut of PepsiCo's national “Dream Machine” recycling initiative in the Tri-State. More than 100 cans spilled to the sidewalk in front of ROCS convenience store at 1100 Shepherdstown Road when Martinsburg Mayor George Karos wielded a large pair of gold-colored scissors to snip the string of dark blue aluminum just above his head. PepsiCo launched the Dream Machine initiative on Earth Day last year with the goal of increasing the U.S. beverage container recycling rate from 34 percent to 50 percent by 2018, according to a news release from the company.
