When you donate, here’s what we can do…

Electronics Recycling Program

Since 2006, we’ve recycled hundreds of tons of ewaste – equal to the weight of 15 fire trucks! We pay for recycling through Total Reclaim, Inc., a Seattle-based recycler. Learn more!

Environmental Responsibility

Due to the possibility of hazardous waste elements leaching into groundwater, this program benefits the many residents of the Interior who rely on wells for drinking water. And because Total Reclaim salvages and resells valuable resources such as precious metals, fewer natural resources will be needed when producers buy the recycled material to make new products. Learn more!

Special Event Recycling

Green Star partners with a variety of community organizations to provide recycling bins at special events and coordinate volunteers who collect and sort recyclable materials. Over two dozen volunteers collected and sorted more than 1,500 pounds of plastic water bottles and aluminum cans during the 2014 Tanana Valley State Fair. Learn more!

Fairbanks Recycling Guide

Green Star publishes and distributes 15,000+ Fairbanks Recycling Guides annually. This comprehensive resource includes valuable information to help community members navigate the recycling scene in Fairbanks. You can download an electronic version of the Fairbanks Recycling Guide. Get the guide!

Education & Outreach

Every year, Green Star partners with Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA) to present the Energy Hog Program at local elementary schools. This program accomplishes two goals: it helps students track down energy wasters—or energy hogs—and it teaches them energy-saving habits. Learn more!
