Kenai National Wildlife Refuge has recycled 2,019 pounds of material since the new year began.  The Refuge has recycled everything from cardboard to waste oil for over ten years but has only kept track of the total since April 2004.  Since that time 9,792 pounds of newspaper, aluminum cans, and the like have been collected at the Refuge and hauled to collection centers at the Kenai Peninsula Borough refuse site, or other appropriate sites.  Refuge staff and volunteers make the program work by providing information and collection bins, and periodically making "dump runs."  The program not only sets a good example by maintaining environmentally friendly offices, but helps save money on garbage removal.
