            Now that it seems the harsh winter has finally been beaten back and spring is near, a project postponed from last fall at Threshold Recycling is about to get underway. Executive Director Ken Reinke says work on the new drive-through recycling building should start soon.



-- (Threshold 1            18 sec              "As everybody in Kodiak knows ... end of this month, though.")


            The structure will be a steel frame covered in fabric, much like a heavy duty WeatherPort. Reinke says the drive-through model of recycling has been used successfully in the Mat-Su Borough:


-- (Threshold 2            36 sec              "I went up to visit their building ... I want to pass them (laughs)")


            A drive-through collection building will mean restricted hours, but Reinke says they will be convenient and there will be volunteers on-site to help with the sorting:


-- (Threshold 3            42 sec              "It should be very evident by ... community members help them.")


            Even though there won't be 24-hour recycling at the Threshold site on Von Sheele (she-lee), the collection points downtown at the Spit and Senior Center will still be open.

            The new drive-through recycling structure is being paid for by a grant received last year from the State of Alaska.
