(BLOOMINGTON) - Habitat for Humanity ReStore announced its recycling drive in celebration of National Recycling Day with Bloomingfoods East and the Chocolate Moose.

The drive will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 15 at the ReStore's drop-off center, located at 2450 S. Henderson St.

Additional drop-off locations will be active for those who can't make it to the ReStore: the Chocolate Moose will host a drive from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Bloomingfoods East will be operating during those same hours.

Donations can be made in the form of furniture, cabinets and appliances or smaller-ticket items like kitchenware, housewares and tools.

The drop-off will also serve as a site for basic recycling of cardboard, plastic, aluminum and other metals. This also includes used holiday string lights.

Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity, the Evangelical Community Church and the Kelley School of Business are expected to attend and lend a hand.

If people want to participate but cannot physically make it to any drop-off sites Nov. 15, you can call Habitat for Humanity ReStore's manager Carmela Garcia at 
812-331-2660.

National Recycling Day, also known as America Recycles Day, is Nov. 15 each year. Proceeds from the event will "directly support Habitat for Humanity's work to eliminate substandard housing in Monroe County," according to the release.

America Recycles Day is a program created by Keep America Beautiful, "a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States," according to the American Recycles Day website
