Since July 2001, Grand Island Area Habitat for Humanity has been recycling
aluminum cans as part of Cans for Habitat. Money earned through the
program has paid for construction materials on dozens of homes in five
counties. These homes have helped families reach home-ownership
and have helped improve neighborhoods throughout central Nebraska.
Over the years, 800,000 pounds of aluminum cans
have been recycled thanks to community recycling efforts!
The unsung heroes of the program are the volunteers, known as the
"Can-do" team. They pick-up from the 14 drop site locations and take
cans in for processing. More of these volunteers are needed to help
process the approximately 40,000 pounds of cans kept out of
landfills every year.
Habitat drop site partners have been crucial to the success of the program.
Cans should be tied in plastic bags and securely placed in the can bins.
If a can bin appears to be too full, please use an alternate location.
Thank you for your cooperation and efforts in supporting Cans for Habitat!
