Fees and Payment

Fees are charged for commercial/business waste only.  Private individuals are not charged.

In May 1993, the Borough began charging fees for solid waste disposal of commercial/business wastes when delivered in vehicles with carrying capacity of five (5) cubic yards or more. Waste requiring special handling also began to be charged around the same time. Fees are charged only for specific waste items which include, but are not limited to; appliances, asbestos, construction/demolition, junk vehicles, landclearing and wood, tires, other inert waste, special waste, wastes which require special handling and waste from cruise ships.

Commercial disposers are charged by the ton at Central Peninsula Landfill and the Homer Transfer Facility due to weigh scales are onsite. Vehicles delivering to sites without weigh scales are charged by the size of the vehicle, regardless of the volume of the load.  There are no fees at the transfer facilities (except Homer), transfer sites, Nanwalek Landfill, Port Graham Landfill  and Tyonek Landfill since there are no attendants on duty to collect fees.  Sales tax is charged as applicable.

Fees must be paid at the time of disposal by check, cash or a charge account opened with the Borough.  Charge accounts are set up only after business information is obtained and the business is determined to be in tax compliance with the Borough.

The Solid Waste fees increased January 1, 2012 due to the Borough adopting Ordinance 2011-32 on September 2011.

Payment

Disposers shall be issued a fee ticket with payment by check due after delivery of each load.  If disposers do not wish to pay after each load is delivered, a disposal charge card may be obtained which allows the business to charge their disposal transactions.

To charge a solid waste disposal transaction at any of the KPB disposal facilities, you must present a valid card.  These cards can only be used by the company whose name appears on the card and may not be loaned or used by any other disposer.  If your company contracts with a waste hauler, the hauler is responsible for payment.  These cards are charge cards and should be protected against unauthorized use. You will be held responsible for all charges made to your account unless you notify the Solid Waste Department of a cancellation or lost card.  A copy of a fee ticket will be given at the time of disposal. The Borough reserves the right to require deposit on account prior to disposal, or payment (check) at the time of disposal.

To receive your charge card, an application form must be completed including the signature of the owner, agent or president of your company, along with a card order form which allows you to receive up to five (5) charge cards.  Also, to qualify as a charge customer, you must be in compliance with Borough tax requirements. You must complete a Tax Compliance Certificate including the required signatures of the applicant and the KPB Finance Department representative, and submit it with the application.   After your application is approved your cards will be mailed in approximately one week.
