Keep our dumpster pads clean & report dumpster diving!
Dumpster diving is prohibited within the Borough of Kodiak, not only to keep each dumpster pad bear safe for our residents but to keep our community safe from undetected health hazards that may injure you while dumpster diving. Scavenging is a separate violation for each container from which materials are scavenged.
