The CTS receives commercial refuse collection vehicles, residential refuse collection vehicles, and household vehicles (cars and pick-ups) from throughout the metropolitan Anchorage area.  The refuse is then loaded into large trailers, which are then transported to the Anchorage Regional Landfill for final disposal.  The CTS also provides a location for the collection of CFC-containing appliances(refrigerators and freezers), used oil, batteries, and household hazardous waste.  Construction and demolition debris, land clearing waste, medical waste and liquid waste are not accepted at this facility. 

All loads must be covered and secured prior to arrival at the facility.  Uncovered or unsecured loads are subject to an additional charge.  For more information, refer to AMC 26.80.50.

Both hazardous waste collection locations (ARL & CTS) operate a re-use program.  Household items that are more than 50% full and in the original container can be obtained free of charge.  So, if you need to pick up some house paint, cleaning supplies, automobile fluids, or lawn and garden chemicals, you may do so while you’re here, depending on availability.
