City of Craig removes recyclable collection points after misuse

    Craig, Alaska (KINY) - The City of Craig is removing recyclable collection dumpsters from the public works property.

    Chronic problems with the dumpsters being used for improper disposal of decaying household garbage led to the decision.

    According to a press release, city staff will evaluate how to better oversee the management of the dumpsters and work to reestablish glass collection.

    Given the lack of a dedicated separate waste stream for shipment of plastics off Prince of Wales Island, city staff does not intend to reestablish collection of plastics at the public works site.

    For more information, or to provide comments, contact Craig City Hall at 826-3275, or the Public Works Department at 826-3405.
