As Phase Two of the Recycling Bin Legacy Project from the 2014 Arctic Winter Games, representatives from the more than 20 schools, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies who were awarded complimentary bins pose during a reception on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at Alaska Waste, Fairbanks. The purpose of the project is to reward organizations who show a commitment to recycling in the community as well as to foster a community brand for recycling. The purchase and distribution of these bins was made possible through sponsorships from the Fairbanks North Star Borough Recycling Commission, Arctic Winter Games Fairbanks Host Society and Kinross Gold Corporation-Fort Knox Mine. In-kind donations were from by Carlile Transportation Systems, Totem Ocean Trailer Express and Alaska Waste. Volunteers who worked on the project are Jason Avery, Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation’s Pioneer Park; Becca Brado, Green Star of Interior Alaska; Karen Lane, former General Manager, AWG Fairbanks Host Society; and Deb Hickok, Explore Fairbanks.
