Live Thrive

Live Thrive

Live Thrive is an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization working since 2010 to create a community that cares about a healthy and sustainable environment. We started as a blog sharing sustainable efforts of individuals, communities and local businesses large and small. The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM) facility is a premier program of Live Thrive. It is a permanent drop-off facility that aims to improve our environmental health by encouraging reuse and diverting thousands of pounds of household hazardous waste, bulky trash and other hard-to-recycle items from Metro-Atlanta landfills and water systems. CHaRM also accepts sorted single-stream items for those who do not have access. All operations expenses for CHaRM are paid from grants, donations and recycling fees.

From our Executive Director, Brian Hill>> What should have been a rain out in any other year, turned into a crowd dance party, in the rain, on the last day of the 85th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival. These people got it started and it exploded from there. Thank you so much to my board, my staff, our artists, our volunteers and our vendors for making this happen and giving the city of Atlanta something to celebrate.

Our city needed this and you made it happen. Thank you.
