Turn your plastic waste into lumber
Does this make you cringe a little? Us too.
That's what we are partnering with a local engineer who is collecting plastic all around Alaska to shred, melt and mold it into lumber.
What plastics do you collect and how do I tell what's what?
We accept plastics #1, #2, #4 and #5.
Most plastic items have a label on the bottom that indicates what type of plastic they are made of. You'll find this number inside the arrow triangle symbol we often associate with recycling.
This photo shows an example of a #1 plastic, with a "1" inside the arrow triangle. If your plastic has a "1", "2", "4" or "5", we accept it!
We are the Anchorage collection point.
Communities in Homer, Seward, Soldotna and more are collecting plastics 1, 2, 4 and 5 for this project. This is one of the collection containers in Seward, AK.
Stop in during our shopping hours (Saturday + Sunday 10AM-4PM) to drop off your plastic!
