PAPER COLLECTION

Paper recycling at the Downtown Depot

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.

Commercial paper & recycling pickup service

Is your business or organization interested in having your paper& recycling collected to be recycled?  We offer a commercial paper &recycling collection service to help divert paper waste from the Quigley Landfill.

Participants pay $10 per pick-up for paper only, or $20.00 for paper & recycling. Collection can happen on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, depending on the need.  You are responsible for sorting your paper (white office paper, mixed paper, newsprint) and storing it in an accessible location. Recycling is to be bagged for easy removal.

Collection happens every Tuesday between 12-3. In the winter months if the weather is -40 or colder the pick-up will be cancelled and rescheduled that week on a warmer day.

If you’re interested in having paper& recycling collected from your business or organization, contact Conservation Klondike at 993-6666 or cksadmin@gmail.com.  Thanks for your support!
