Sponsor IAGS

We are grateful for the generous support from our sponsors and members of the community. Contributions like yours help Interior Alaska Green Star continue our educational and recycling programs.
E-waste is the fastest growing part of our waste stream. E-Recycling prevents toxic and dangerous materials from entering our landfills and allows for many of the components to be broken down and reused.
Even without a traditional recycling program in the Fairbanks North Star Borough, Fairbanksans are recycling. Click the link below to download our list of where, and what, to recycle in Fairbanks.

Support

IAGS is currently accepting all electronics FREE OF CHARGE. The funding is provided by the Fairbanks North Star Borough – Public Works Solid Waste Division, based on the recommendation of the Recycling Commission.

Program Needs

In order to continue our program, IAGS must find a new location to host these popular monthly events. We are seeking a community partnership that would provide the appropriate space (approximately 1,500 square feet) and necessary equipment and labor services at reasonable rates. By becoming a sponsor of IAGS, your company would be getting monthly exposure and recognition in the community for supporting this popular program.
