About Us | Green Star of Interior Alaska About Us | Green Star of Interior Alaska

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 the North Star Borough, 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.

Green Star consists of a small staff of an 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 partner with us in many other ways to help make our community a greener and more sustainable place.
