About Us

ICON_GreenStarGreen Star of Interior Alaska is a local nonprofit serving the Fairbanks North Star Borough. Our programs are designed to encourage reuse of materials, reduce unnecessary waste, and increase recycling efforts in the Fairbanks area. We provide electronics recycling for businesses and households, as well as event recycling for special events large and small. We also focus on outreach and education to the community with programs like our Fairbanks Recycling Guide, presentations at schools, businesses, and organizations, and our new recycling curriculum, to be released for local elementary schools in the fall of 2015.

Green Star consists of a small staff of one full-time Executive Director and several part-time staff, a dedicated board of directors, and an amazing group of volunteers, without whom none of our programs would be possible! We invite you to learn more about our organization and join us as a volunteer or member, or partner with us in many other ways to help make our community a greener and more sustainable place.
