Capitol Recycling and Disposal provides the City and Borough of Juneau with recycling and disposal services that are safe, convenient and protective of the environment. WM District Manager Mike Mahaffey brings two decades of experience to the site, with a strong track record for continuous improvement, compliance and safety.
The recycling drop-off area (RecycleWorks) is an important part of the community's waste reduction infrastructure and is provided by the City and Borough of Juneau. For information about what can be recycled at RecycleWorks and other recycling services available in the community, go to www.juneaurecycling.com.
Recyclables delivered to RecycleWorks are processed at JMK Fibers, WM's state-of-the art recycling center in Tacoma, Washington. JMK is a regional materials recovery facility (MRF) that processes, bales and then sends recyclables to end markets so they can made into new products.
For material that cannot be recycled, the landfill is engineered with environmental protection systems that meet or exceed rigorous government regulations and are subject to highly regulated monitoring and reporting requirements. Systems include leachate collection and removal as well as landfill gas collection and control. The facility accepts primarily municipal solid waste (household waste), construction and demolition debris, industrial waste, and special waste. Capitol Recycling and Disposal does not accept hazardous waste.
