SCRAP Bin is Georgia’s only dedicated creative reuse center. Our community-donated materials range from recyclables to educational materials to fine art supplies. We also host arts and crafts workshops, special events and birthday parties. SCRAP Bin is also home to the Helwig Gallery.
SCRAP Bin is dedicated to encouraging creative reuse of recycled materials.
