EAGLE RIVER, Alaska -- The Anchorage Regional Landfill in Eagle River can now accept more materials, which is good news for recyclers.
Community members gathered at the landfill Thursday to celebrate the re-opening of the newly expanded and improved recycling drop off site.
Solid Waste Services says people can bring plastic bottles and jugs, as well as cardboard, newspaper, mixed paper, and aluminum cans.
To help ease traffic congestion, the drop off area has also been relocated within the landfill.
"What we've tried to do up here in this general portion of the landfill is to create a one-stop-shop area for our residential customers so now they can come up here and dispose of their household wastes," said Mark Madden the director of Solid Waste Services.
