Channel Construction is the parent company of Skookum Sales & Recycling. We say "Southeast Alaska Original Metal Recycler"  because Channel Construction has been cleaning up Juneau as well as many other locations all over southeast(such as Haines, Skagway, Yakutat, Hoonah, Yakobi Island, Pelican, Tenakee Springs, Sitka, Kake, Petersburg, Wrangell, Thorn Bay, Coffman Cove, Klawock, Hydaburg, Metlakatla, Thorn Bay, Craig, Angoon and many other remote locations) since the 1950's.
William R. Tonsgard II took over Channel Construction & Channel Sanitation (the landfill) from his father William R. Tonsgard I in 1979. Mr. Tonsgard was always interested in waste reduction and recycling even long before it was fashionable; recycling paper and cardboard in the 70's and always trying to find a new way to  reuse waste in a productive manor. In the mid 80's he installed a garbage incinerator at the landfill to put an end to Juneau's trash going into the ground. In 1999 the landfill was sold to Waste Management so  we could move our focus on the construction and scrap metal. 
Skookum Sales & Recycling yard in Lemon Creek opened it's gates in the spring of 2008 when we began the first Junk Car Round up under the name Skookum. At the same time we began taking scrap metal free of charge. In the fall of 2008 we started paying for metals like: copper, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, lead and zinc. 

About The Owner

William R. Tonsgard II, grew up working alongside his father in logging camps throughout Southeast Alaska, since he was a young boy. When he wasn't out at camp he would collect bits of scrap metal and sell it to a local down by the Aurora Harbor.
Through all Mr. Tonsgard's business ventures community has always been very important to him, giving back wherever he can; whether it be donating time, work, or Christmas and Thanksgiving food to the needy.

Non Ferrous (Non Magnetic) Metals

Any metal brought in for sale should be presorted to the best of your ability. large loads or items should be weighed on a truck scale and brought in with a weight ticket.
Mixed prices will be paid for metals that are "contaminated" with a foreign material such as plastic, rubber, wood or metal of a different  type.
