How it works

Step 1: Store your food/garden scraps in your ANC Community Compost bucket.

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

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