Recycle for Good

This year all Atlanta Area Council Packs, Troops, Crews, and Posts are challenged to join Recycle for Good, with the goal of collecting 10,000 pounds of aluminum for recycling, which will in turn help fund a Habitat for Humanity home for a family in Atlanta’s Westside community! This is a big goal, but we know with your help we’re sure to achieve it.

Did you know $73 million worth of aluminum goes needlessly to landfills instead of being recycled each year in Georgia? Think if we had that funding to invest in our communities!

Start Recycling Aluminum Bottles & Cans

  1. Challenge your fellow Scouts, your charter organization, your school, your neighborhood and local businesses to collect aluminum bottles and cans. We are collecting beverage cans only – no food cans as they are typically not made of aluminum.
  2. Organize collection points at community events, in neighborhoods, local businesses or at your charter organization.

Tell Us About Your Success

  1. You will need to weigh your cans and log your results.
  2. If you use a local recycling center, the check of the value of the cans should be made out to Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, mailed to the Council office.

All Scouts who participate will receive a commemorative patch.

Can Your Unit Achieve the 1,000 Pound Challenge? 

All Units who successfully recycle 1,000 pounds of aluminum cans (31,000 cans) will receive a special prize.

The deadline to collect cans is Earth Day, but you can submit your results until May 1, to receive your patches.
