Solid Waste Services (SWS)
The Solid Waste Services Department (SWS) is made up of two utilities – Refuse Collections and Solid Waste Disposal. The Refuse Collections utility provides residential and commercial trash collection for our City of Anchorage service area. The Solid Waste Disposal utility operates the Anchorage Regional Landfill, located in Eagle River, and two transfer stations (Central Transfer Station in Anchorage, and the Girdwood Transfer Station).
For your safety, SWS requires all patrons to wear safety vests on the commercial side of the Central Transfer Station (CTS), and on the working face of the Anchorage Regional Landfill (ARL) at all times. Hard hats are recommended, but are not required. For questions regarding this policy, please call 343-6262.
Due to the costs associated with accepting credit and debit cards, at this time SWS is only able to accept cash or check as payment when disposing of items at any of our facilities.
ALL LOADS MUST BE COVERED AND SECURED per AMC 26.80.050 (Loads not covered and secured are subject to a $10 to $30 Fine for all SWS Locations). COVERED LOADS MEAN CLEANER ROADS!
