CHaRM Corporate Challenge 2023

In 2021, Live Thrive launched another major recycling initiative, the CHaRM Corporate Challenge (CCC).  Working with Atlanta-based corporations, this challenge offers the opportunity for each company to have their employees drop off recycling at CHaRM from April 1-22, 2023.

The purpose of this initiative is to create a collaborative effort to sustainably manage materials. The development of this community will result in creating a healthier environment and water system in metro Atlanta. In 2022, the CCC diverted close to 120,000 pounds of materials away from Atlanta’s landfills and water system. For 2023, Live Thrive is challenging CCC participants to reach a new goal of diverting 250,000 pounds!
