Kodiak Island Borough Landfill
Responsibilities
The Engineering and Facilities Department is responsible for the administration, operation, and maintenance of the baler facility and landfill area.  The landfill is operated in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations and guidelines. 

Fees
Landfill operations are supported wholly by disposal fees. The Borough is moving toward a Pay as You Throw system so that each user pays proportionally based on the amount of waste  disposed at the landfill. Currently, most fees are assessed via garbage collection services so residents can bring many household items to the landfill for free, however there are also some fees charged at the landfill. 

Disposal Service Fees
Some disposal services are charged a fee, among them are:
  • Commercial garbage
  • Metals
  • Residential and commercial construction and remodeling materials including lumber and fixtures (sinks, cabinets, etc.)
  • Vehicles

Please see the Solid Waste section of our fee schedule for fee amounts.

Accepted Residential Garbage
The landfill accepts the following residential garbage, up to 500 lbs, at no charge:  
  • Appliances
  • Car battery
  • Furniture
  • Household harzardous waste (paint, solvents, household chemicals, etc), up to 40 lbs*
  • Household trash
  • Tires, without rims, up to eight per month
  • Used oil, up to five gallons per month

*The Borough also hosts an annual Community Cleanup for household hazardous waste disposal.

For questions about what can be taken to the landfill, please call (907) 486-9345.

Future Planning & Efforts
Our current landfill footprint will reach capacity in 2014. The Borough is in the process of constructing a new lined lateral expansion. This expansion is projected to reach capacity in 2022-2024. 

Each Kodiak resident generates about five pounds of solid waste per day. This is 12 percent higher than the national average, yet the community recycles only six percent of this waste. The Borough encourages residents to recycle in an effort to extend the life of the landfill.
