Sunday Closures ARE BACK


Effective the first Sunday in October through the last Sunday in April each year, the Central Peninsula Landfill (CPL) will be closed on Sundays.

Also closed on these Sundays will be the Homer Transfer Facility, Seward Transfer Facility, Kenai Transfer Facility, Nikiski Transfer Facility, Sterling Transfer Facility and Kasilof Transfer Site.

Mondays through Saturdays all facilities will remain open during the usual hours per site.

This is a cost-saving measure for the Kenai Peninsula Borough.

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.

 

THINK BEFORE YOU THROW

 OPERATING/DISPOSAL POLICY

FISH, SEAFOOD, AND ANIMAL PROCESS WASTE

June, 1996

 I. Purpose

The purpose of the DISPOSAL POLICY FOR FISH, SEAFOOD, AND ANIMAL PROCESS WASTE is to set disposal limits and guidelines.

II. Definitions

Putrescible waste - solid waste that contains organic matter of such a character and proportion as to cause obnoxious odors and to be capable of attracting or providing food for birds or animals.

III. General Policy

The Borough prohibits the disposal of fish, seafood, and animal process waste at Borough solid waste facilities except as follows:

Borough Landfill

Borough landfills shall accept small amounts of fish, seafood, and animal process waste from the general public/households. Waste must be in plastic garbage bags, tied off, and placed in the building, the landfill or collection container, as directed by the landfill operator.

Putrescible wastes such as carcasses, guts, etc. from fish, seafood, and animals generated from commercial activities, shall be accepted in amounts of no more than 1,000 pounds per haul and no more than 1,000 pounds per week. This 1,000 pounds also includes waste generated by the general public, but accumulated and hauled by a business. Liquid wastes are prohibited and putrescible waste must be dewatered prior to disposal.

The waste disposer must check with the landfill operator to obtain disposal instructions. Waste must be deposited directly at the working face of the landfill (or alternate location as designated by the landfill operator). The disposer's vehicle must be capable of traveling through the landfill and waste must be offloaded expediently. Mixed loads must be properly segregated with non-putrescible refuse/trash deposited within designated areas of the building (at sites with buildings) and putrescible waste deposited at locations directed by the operator.

Businesses and commercially hauled waste shall be charged a fee of $20/ton or by the cubic yard rate at sites without scales. Payment must be made at the time of disposal unless a charge account is already established with the Borough. Mixed loads will be charged for the entire load, if not properly segregated.

Borough Drop-Box Sites

Borough drop-box (dumpster) sites shall accept small amounts of fish waste and animal process waste from the general public/households only, provided that acceptance of the waste does not result in a health or safety problem. Waste must be in plastic trash bags, tied off, and placed directly in the collection container designated by the Borough or site operator. Small amounts are considered to be up to two trash bags per day. All other fish, seafood, and animal process waste (ie. carcasses, heads, bodies, bones, hides, etc.) must be deposited at the nearest landfill. Waste generated from commercial activities is prohibited.

Borough Transfer Sites

Borough transfer sites in Nikiski, Kenai and Seward shall accept small amounts of fish waste and animal process waste from the general public/households only, provided that acceptance of the waste does not result in a health or safety problem. Waste must be in plastic trash bags, tied off, and placed directly in the trailer, tipping floor, or other location as directed by the operator. Small amounts are considered to be up to two trash bags per day. All other fish, seafood, and animal process waste (ie. carcasses, heads, bodies, bones, hides, etc.) must be deposited at the nearest landfill. Waste generated from commercial activities is prohibited.

IV. Contact Numbers

Contact the Kenai Peninsula Borough Solid Waste Department, 262-9667, for information on disposal restrictions and disposal fees.

V. Other Restrictions

Disposers must follow all disposal facility rules. This includes, but is not limited to, identifying the type, source, and estimated volume of waste; weighing the waste; providing prior notice if requested by the landfill operator; payment of fees; etc.

The Borough reserves the right to waive portions of this policy as may be in the best interest of the Borough.
