How Can We Help You?


Community Compost

June 2018 through October 2018


Anchorage produces roughly 1 ton of trash per resident - we can do better.

How it works

Step 1: Store your accepted food/garden scraps in your ANC Community Compost or regular five gallon bucket.

Step 2: Drop-off your food scraps at either the Anchorage Regional Landfill (15500 Eagle River Loop Road) or the Central Transfer Station (54th and Juneau). Open Monday - Saturday 8am to 5pm.

Step 3: Take compost from the Anchorage Regional Landfill or the Central Transfer Station - an equal amount to the amount of food scraps you dropped off.

Drop-off Hours

Monday - Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Closed Sundays

Best times to go to the landfill are:

    Tuesday - Friday, 11 am to 5pm

    Saturday, 9am to 5pm
