Our recycling center is located at the Central Recycling Facility (CRF). Here is the new sorting guide used by the borough's CRF. 

Address: 1855 Marika St.

Phone: 907-374-6616


WE ALSO DO RECYCLING PICK UPS FOR BUSINESSES! This is a great income stream for the Mission and helps save the environment at the same time. 



  • Almost 11 million pounds kept out of the landfill since 2009!

  • The Recycling Center at the Mission processes 49 tons of material a month.

  • An average of 300 cars drop off material per week.

  • The Recycling Center picks up materials for over 22 businesses.

We would like to invite you to support the Mission by bringing your recyclables to the new Central Recycling Facility. Recycling is good for the environment and for our city. When you recycle, you are doing more than just recycling materials, you are helping us provide shelter meals, a bed to sleep in, and a hot shower, as well as job training to our residents. The principal goal of the Mission's involvement in this project is to help our community's homeless and disadvantaged gain job skills and career counseling. From this goal stems the following three outcomes:


  •  Reduces the amount of waste entering our landfills;

  •  Conserves our natural resources; and

  • Reduces energy consumption and pollution.


  • Provides job training and skill building for our community’s homeless;

  • Provides free recycling service for local businesses and Interior residents; and

  • Teaches the community about the merits of recycling and compassion for the disadvantaged.


  • Provides income for the Mission; and

  • Reduces landfill and solid waste costs for the Fairbanks North Star Borough

Hours of Operation

The borough's new Central Recycling Facility hours are Monday-Friday 12PM-5:30PM and Saturday 9AM-5PM.
Local businesses may set up a monthly pick up from the Fairbanks Rescue Mission for the cost of $50 per pick-up. For more information, please contact the Recycling Center Operations Manager by Email at fairbanks.recycling@gmail.com or call 907-374-6616.
