 Since 1984, K&K Recycling Inc. has been recycling in the interior of Alaska. In August, Fort Wainwright and K&K Recycling Inc. began a source separation recycling program to eliminate the waste stream by realizing it’s a resource stream of raw new materials waiting to be utilized by making new industry, product and local jobs.

    Thank you for the information.
    I hope you consider having a station here in Bettles Field, AK. The northern lights are great here!
    NPS has an Air Quality station here.

    Hi My husband and I own Delta Concrete. A few years ago I went to 3 bars and asked them to save me their glass. In 3 months I had a dump truck bed full. I finally had to stop picking it up because its a lot of work for a 120 pound woman. All the glass is still on the back property. I would love to do something with it, and am so glad to here about your glass recycling.
