What can I put in my curbside recycling bin?

Accepted materials are cardboard, including greasy pizza boxes; Mixed paper, including envelopes, office paper, magazines and newspaper; # 1 PETE plastic bottles and #2 HDPE plastic jugs; Aluminum, steel, and tin cans.

What materials are not accepted in curbside recycling?

Glass; Styrofoam; plastic bags, plastic cling wrap, and #3-7 plastics; paper towels, cups, napkins; milk or juice cartons; plastic clamshells.

What will happen to my recyclable materials?

Your materials will be taken to the Anchorage Recycling Center, where they will be bailed and backhauled to Washington state. There, they will be sorted, sold, and converted to new materials.

Why should I choose curbside recycling?

Recycling helps Mat-Su by keeping materials out of the local landfill. The fewer materials that are sent to the landfill, the lower the rates will be over the long term.

You could save a few dollars on your trash bill. Recyclable items take up a lot of volume in a trash bin. By recycling, you may choose to switch to a smaller trash roll cart.

You can feel good knowing that you are prolonging the life of usable materials, reducing energy use, and lessening your overall impact.

Call us today to sign up! (907) 376-2158.
