Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

RecycleWorks program guiding document for the next 3 to 5 years is the Solid Waste Action Plan. The CBJ residential recycling and junk vehicle program is funded by a monthly fee on utility billings and an Alaska vehicle registration fee.  The recycled materials are shipped by barge to Seattle and then sold to various companies for processing and reuse.  Any revenue from the sale is then used to offset the costs of the program.

Commercial recycling permits are available for businesses, click here for an application.
