Help Build a Habitat for Humanity Home by Recycling Aluminum Cans

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County announces the 2024 Cans for Homes Aluminum Recycling Drive. Sponsored by Novelis, Cans for Homes grants will go to Habitat for Humanity affiliates that collect a minimum of 500 pounds (or 16,000 cans). Top performing Habitats can earn even higher awards to support home construction.

“Cans for Homes has already provided funds to pay for the framing, drywall, doors, and trim of a Habitat home,” said Executive Director Rob Selkow. “This is a simple way for companies, or church groups to take part in homebuilding by just collecting aluminum cans,” Selkow added.

Montgomery County is one of 100 Habitat affiliates competing to collect the most aluminum cans through October 31, 2024.

HOW TO SPONSOR CANS FOR HOMES: Support affordable housing in Clarksville as a Sponsor/Can Collection location. Donors at $200 and above will receive a Habitat Recycling Bin and 100 collection bags. Your business will be promoted on Habitat for Humanity social media, in the monthly newsletter, and in the Habitat ReStore on Madison St.

Drop-off locations will be added as sponsors sign on to participate. Until then, The Habitat ReStore will accept aluminum can donations at 404 Madison Street in Downtown Clarksville.

Recycling aluminum cans is good for the environment: When we recycle cans, we save natural resources because we don’t need to dig up as much aluminum from the earth. It also helps to save energy. Making aluminum from scratch takes a lot of energy, but recycling it uses way less. Plus, when we recycle cans, we keep them out of landfills, which helps keep our planet cleaner. So, when you recycle your aluminum cans, you’re doing your part to help the Earth!
