HOW TO RECYCLE
VCRS is a drop-off center for your sorted recycling. VCRS is located in Palmer at 9465 E Chanlyut Circle. 

Sorting by category according to our current VCRS Household Flyer makes recycling possible in Palmer, Wasilla and all of the the Mat-Su Valley. Refer to this helpful list of items VCRS accepts for recycling and for re-use to learn how they should be separated and prepared for drop-off.

VCRS is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible charitable organization – EIN #92-0174289. VCRS serves the Mat-Su Borough community in Alaska for the long-term good of all. Donations are welcome and greatly appreciated. Yearly memberships are also available.
