Anchorage Waste Disposal
Alaska contains over 215 municipal landfills in communities across the state. In addition, over 115 waste storage, treatment, or disposal facilities support Alaskan industries, including the oil and gas development, mining, timber, construction, fishing, and tourism industries. The ADEC Solid Waste Program regulates health and environmental compliance at these facilities through a combination of design review, permits and authorizations, inspections, monitoring, and compliance assistance. Program staff are dedicated to improving compliance and permitting at all solid waste facilities in Alaska.
Proposed Regulations Changes
The ADEC proposes to amend regulations at Title 18, Chapter 60 (18 AAC 60) regarding storage, treatment, and disposal requirements for oil and gas exploration and production waste; and reuse and disposal requirements for coal ash. The amendments also address treatment requirements for small waste treatment facilities for medical waste and biosolids, as well as updating user fees.

Eroding Landfill in Western Alaska
The Solid Waste Program conducted a 4 year Waste Erosion Assessment and Review (WEAR) project to inventory landfills, contaminated sites, tank farms, and other sites of environmental concern. These sites were then prioritized based on their erosion and contaminant risk with the 20 highest ranked sites receiving a Detailed Action Plan.
We visited 124 communities to throughout the project and created a Community Report for each community. Each of these reports can be found on the Community Reports page.
The Final Report was completed in May 2015 and is available on the WEAR Project page. There is no additional work for this completed project.even india bellen india about afghanistan situation india after gandhi india against pakistan india among top 10 countries india among us discord india arie songs india around country india at paralympics india behind new zealand tour cancellation india british colony until 1947 india by design india cases rise despite lockdown india contra fund india developing but defencepk india for mayor india for you manteca india from the vow india gate made up of which rock india in a day india inside china india jersey india kager india kitchen tustin india lockdown till september india maria india odd even india out of t20 world cup 2021 india outside country india over us india overview india oxenberg india past president india pro game india quarantine requirements india quarantine requirements india religion india royale cosmetics around india clive is misconstrued as polish buildings in india made of sandstone challenges in front of india's security india against england india behind new zealand india by election 2021 india currency india from kitchen nightmares india gants india government india in asia india kashmir india kitchen watertown india like app india like italy and china india lockdown until july india love india next top model season 5 india nz india of the reds india olympics 2021 india on world map india out of oxygen india population 2021 india quad challenges in front of india's security system country except india except india how many hours are india in front of the uk india after ww2 india against corruption india against presstitutes
