The Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM) accepts drop-off of materials that can’t be recycled at Oconee County Collection Sites from Oconee County residents. Items accepted by CHaRM include appliances, batteries, electronics, mercury-containing devices, and paint.

The Teacher Reuse Store is co-located with the CHaRM facility and accepts office supplies, furniture, and more. Teachers may "shop" the store at no cost to help meet the needs of their classrooms.

The CHaRM and Teacher Reuse Store is located at 1005 College Avenue in Athens, and is open Mondays and Wednesdays  from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. Click here to view the CHaRM and Teacher Reuse Store flyer.
