Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity and its ReStore thrift shop, located at 150 Pine Road, are holding an Earth Day electronics recycling event Saturday.
The Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity ReStore will be celebrating Earth Day with an electronics recycling event from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Businesses and individuals are encouraged to bring in their electronics such as computer monitors, laptops, computer components, fax machines, phones, copiers, CD and VCR players, scanners, camera, speakers and more to recycle.
IMS Electronics will be at the Newnan Habitat ReStore located at 150 Pine Road south of Newnan to help raise funds for six qualified families that are currently in the Habitat for Humanity program. Donated items are tax deductible.
The Newnan ReStore is open to the public for shopping Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We want to make a great impression in our community by educating the importance of a cleaner and safer environment,” Hazel said. “When the community thinks about recycling, reusing or reducing, we want the community to think Newnan Habitat ReStore — hence the name!
“When you donate to the Habitat ReStore, not only are you making a difference in your environment, you are making a difference in helping place a family in a simple, decent and affordable home — hence the recycling symbol around the home in the logo!” Hazel continued.

Vendors will be set up during this event selling plants, yard art, bird feeders and more. Anyone interested in setting up for this event are asked to call or come by the ReStore for an application.

The Newnan Habitat ReStore accepts donations of furniture, cabinets, appliances, plumbing, lighting and household items Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. If your items are too large to bring yourself, call the Newnan Habitat ReStore to schedule a pickup.

Volunteers are greatly needed at the Habitat ReStore to help process donations, stock merchandise, to make repairs and do testing and for customer service. If you are interested in volunteering with Habitat, volunteer orientations are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Newnan Habitat ReStore. Anyone over 16 years of age is encouraged to attend.

For more information about the Earth Day event, donations or volunteering, call Sharon Hazel at 770-252-4061 or visit the Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity website at www.nchfh.org.
