Why Should I Recycle Cans for Habitat?

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.

Drop Sites

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.
