With this being Earth Week, The Carrollton Menu wanted to highlight this local non profit called The Scrap Bin …. If you teach – public, private, home, or Sunday school, VBS, Scouts, etc. – you qualify for free materials at SCRAP Bin, a non-profit that collects recycled materials for art and education. Founded by local pottery and mosaic artist, Helen Helwig, SCRAP Bin is here to meet the needs of teachers whose classroom materials and art budgets have been drastically cut. Don’t teach? Then SCRAP Bin’s here for you, too. You’ll find an assortment of odds and ends to meet most any artistic need. There’s pottery, tile, glass, ceramics, gardening supplies, small arts and crafts, jewelry and beading, seasonal items, office supplies and paper, printing supplies, framing, hardware, fabric, vintage wear and loads more. Most items start at ten cents and there’s very little over three dollars. In addition to great prices on great products, SCRAP Bin also offers summer camp, a Creative Party Center for birthdays and other small gatherings, assistance with lesson planning, classroom presentations, weekly workshops, and volunteer opportunities. SCRAP Bin is located at 1111 Bankhead Hwy in Carrollton, Georgia and is open Tuesday-Friday, 2:00-6:00 and Saturday, 9:00-1:00.
