Recycling in Talkeetna is possible because of a collaborative effort between the Mat-Su Borough Landfill Division, Valley Community for Recycling Solutions, and Talkeetna Community Council.
We are grateful for grants from Rasmuson Foundation, Mat-Su Health Foundation, MEA Round-up, Zero Landfill Initiative/Subaru, The Talkeetna Community Council CAP and ongoing donations from recyclers.

Talkeetna Recycling Works
a commitee of the Talkeetna Community Council, Inc.

Even just two hours a month. Contact Cici @ 355-8324

Talkeetna Recycling Works Objective: Create an efficient and long lasting recycling program for Talkeetna.
