The UAF Recycling team collects normally collects these materials, sorts them, and then delivers them to the FNSB Central Recycling Facility (CRF). Beginning July 1, 2022 the FNSB Central Recycling Facility is temporarily closed. We will begin picking up these materials up again when the CRF has re-opened. We are still collecting and recycling aluminum, glass, and electronics.

The UAF Office of Sustainability is a student-funded, student-driven effort to make UAF a model for the Circumpolar North and beyond by incorporating sustainability into curriculum, operations, campus life and the greater community. Our vision is to see UAF inspire Alaska’s diverse communities with leadership in environmental stewardship, energy and resource management, social justice and fiscal responsibility, allowing us to thrive now and be resilient in the face of a changing future.
An assortment of student-run programs are operated by the Office of Sustainability within the Center for Student Engagement. These are the Green Bikes program, UAF Recycling, the FreeStore, Nanook Grown, the Upcycle Annex, and the Wood Center Food Pantry. All programs are operated with the guidance provided by the student-led RISE Board.
