Green Star offers the only green electronics recycling program in the Interior.
We pay for recycling through Total Reclaim, a Seattle-based e-steward (a truly rigorous, internationally compliant certification program assuring e-recycling best practices). This Depot provides year-round access to a full-service electronics recycling drop-off station for residents of Fairbanks and surrounding areas.
Thanks to FNSB’s Recycling Commission, this service is FREE for Fairbanks North Star Borough businesses and households!

Items NOT Accepted
The following items CANNOT be accepted at this time:
- Full size appliances: washers/dryers, refrigerators, ovens, etc.
- Smoke Detectors
- Exit Signs
- Vacuum Cleaners
- Fluorescent Light Bulbs (NOTE: CFLs can be dropped off at Home Depot; tubes can be recycled at North Coast Electric for a fee.)
- Local restaurants could provide lunch for 10-15 volunteers on collection days
- Businesses could put together a team of volunteers and help out for a few hours
- Offer a financial contribution to help support the program. The FNSB grant offsets many of the electronics recycling expenses, but additional donations help Green Star expand the program. You can help us break through our 2015 goal: 1,000,000 pounds of e-waste diverted from the FNSB landfill! You can donate here.
- Provide approximately 1,500 square feet of warehouse space and forklift/operator as an in-kind donation or at discounted rates. By hosting the monthly collections, your company would get monthly exposure and recognition in the community for supporting this popular program.
