Mat-Su Borough ready for new recycling center

The Matanuska-Susitna Borough expects to break ground on a new recycling center as early as next spring. The facility will help the Borough recycle as much as 25% of the waste that would otherwise end up in the local landfill. That’s more than 10 times what Valley Community for Recycling Solutions can handle at its current location. The current facility has no running water and porta potties for restrooms. Mollie Boyer is the organization’s executive director. She says it also lacks adequate indoor workspace.
