     Kasilof Transfer Site

Disposal Fees

 

OVERVIEW & DEFINITIONS

Disposal fees apply to commercial entities disposing of chargeable materials when delivered in vehicles with a carrying capacity of 5 cubic yards or more.

Commercial entities are sources including, but not limited to, refuse haulers, contractors, towing companies, government agencies, retailers, restaurants, or any other business, including non-profit. Disposers are considered ‘commercial’ if the vehicle transporting the waste is used for any commercial/business activities or if the waste generator/source is a business.

CHARGEABLE MATERIALS

Include but are not limited to: Appliances, Asbestos, Animal Carcasses, Construction/Demolition Debris, Fish Waste, Junk Vehicles, Metals, Special/Industrial Waste, Tires, Wood/Land Clearing Debris. For a more detailed list of each of these materials, seeHow Do I Dispose Of…?’.

TICKETS/INVOICES

Tickets are considered invoices and are due and payable either within 30 days of the date of transaction for pre-approved Solid Waste Charge Accounts, and at the time of disposal for Cash/Check transactions. There are 2 ways in which a ticket is generated: by weight or cubic yard.

SITES with SCALES are charged by the ton. The Central Peninsula Landfill and Homer Transfer Facility are currently the only sites with scales.

SITES without SCALES are charged by the cubic yard. The Seward Transfer Facility and the Beluga and Seldovia Landfills are the only other Solid Waste sites that charge, but the charges are based on cubic yards. (Homer also charges by the cubic yard for businesses without scale privileges.) Capacity shall be determined by adding the cumulative volume of vehicle capacity of the transport vehicle along with any trailers, hoppers, containers, etc. Measurement shall be the cubic yardage of the outermost dimensions.

PAYMENT

There are 3 types of payment accepted: a pre-approved Solid Waste Charge Account, Cash, or Check. Sales tax is added as applicable unless a current and valid KPB Resale Card issued by the KPB Sale Tax Department is presented at the time of transaction or is on file for Charge Accounts with the Solid Waste Department.

SOLID WASTE CHARGE ACCOUNT: Businesses who regularly haul chargeable loads to a Solid Waste facility may obtain a charge account, which allows disposal without having to pay each time. Download the Business Charges Application to get started.

CASH or CHECK: Both are accepted, but note that none of the Solid Waste sites keep a cash drawer, so NO change will be given for cash transactions. Payment is required for each load at the time of disposal unless prior arrangements are made with the Solid Waste Department.
