– taking out the trash is just the beginning.

This web page was created by the Kodiak Island Borough Solid Waste Advisory Board (SWAB) to make citizens aware of how Kodiak handles all of the items we discard at our homes and businesses.  The Kodiak Island Borough encourages all citizens to help reduce the amount of materials going into our landfill. The reduction of waste going into the landfill will extend the life of the landfill and keep costs down for residents.

Right now, the call is out for cardboard and aluminum cans which give the biggest payback in the recycling market. The money helps keep Threshold Recycling operating and pay its workers.


Henry’s - Chartroom/Kodiak Inn - Olds Restaurant

for using paper based take-out boxes instead of Styrofoam.

Do you know someone who deserves a Reduce/Reuse/Recycle shout out?  Do you have ideas? Comments? Questions? Let us know via the Comments & Questions by using this Form or on Facebook @KodiakIslandBorough and Twitter @KodiakBorough.

Thank you for joining the effort to be better caretakers of our beautiful island community!
