The Penny-Pinchers Self-Haul Strategy:

We're all operating on a budget. CWS is here to help you manage that budget the best you possibly can. As a self-haul customer, you have many ways to save money in Haines, and CWS wants to be your one and only waste drop off. Dont waste time and money driving all over Haines, getting rid of one stream here and another there. We got you covered. Heres the best way to maximize your money:

  • CWS takes all separated, clean glass for free. Glass is the second heaviest component of the waste stream and when you pay by the pound, it adds up.
  • CWS buys separated, cleaned aluminum beverage containers. You can either take the money and run or credit the difference to your waste bill.
  • Separate out your compost- food waste, containing a lot of nitrogen and water is THE heaviest component of the waste stream.
  • Recycle! It costs less money to recycle than it does to throw away. Put ALL of those plastics in and dont forget about cardboard, paper, tin and anything else with a recycle symbol on it!

This is the easiest and cheapest way to save money on refuse services in Haines. Any questions? Feel free to call anytime, we'd love to help!
