PAPER RECYCLING & PICKUP

  • Thanks to funding from the Community Development Fund and the City of Dawson, CKS has been able to build a small addition onto the downtown depot.  With the extra space created, we are now able to offer paper recycling to individual households!  Please bring us your white, mixed, and news paper for recycling.
