The City and Borough of Juneau Recycling Center at the landfill will be closed to the public tomorrow, March 25, while staff makes adjustments to the drop-off process to better accommodate social distancing. The recycling center will re-open on Thursday, March 26.

Starting Thursday, the public is asked to follow directions on new signs and to adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Weekday mornings (Tuesday-Friday) from 7-9 a.m. will be reserved for people who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 per CDC guidelines. Community members who are not high risk are asked to refrain from using the facility during these hours.
  2. The facility operating hours will remain Tuesday-Friday from 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  3. All users must maintain 6 feet of spacing from other users at all times.
  4. Painted “lanes” will be added leading to the recycling containers. Only one user will be allowed in each lane at a time to help keep space between people.

The public is encouraged to read and follow all posted signs and have patience as the new system is put in place.
