AS 29.35.050. Garbage and Solid Waste Services.
- (a) Notwithstanding AS 29.35.200
- 29.35.220, a municipality may by ordinance
- (1) provide for the establishment, maintenance, and operation of a system of garbage and solid waste collection and
disposal for the entire municipality, or for districts or portions of it;
- (2) require all persons in the municipality or district to use the system and to dispose of their garbage and solid waste
as provided in the ordinance;
- (3) award contracts for collection and disposal, or provide for the collection and disposal of garbage and solid waste by
municipal officials and employees;
- (4) pay for garbage and solid waste collection and disposal from available money;
- (5) require property owners or occupants of premises to use the garbage and solid waste collection and disposal system
provided by the municipality;
- (6) fix charges against the property owners or occupants of premises for the collection and disposal; and
- (7) provide penalties for violations of the ordinances.
- (b) The governing body of a municipality may not prohibit a person holding a valid certificate from the former Alaska
Public Utilities Commission or from the Regulatory Commission of Alaska from continuing to collect and dispose of
garbage, refuse, trash, or other waste material, or provide other related services in an area in the municipality if
the certificate authorizes the collection and disposal of garbage, refuse, trash, or other waste material and providing
of other services in the area, and the certificate was originally issued before the municipality provided similar
services. Except as provided in (c) of this section, a municipality may not provide for a garbage, refuse, trash, or
other waste material collection and disposal service in an area to the extent it lies in an area granted to a garbage,
refuse, trash, or other waste material carrier by a certificate issued by the former Alaska Public Utilities Commission
or by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska to the carrier until it has purchased the certificate, equipment and
facilities of the carrier, or that portion of the certificate that would be affected, at fair market value. A
municipality may exercise the right of eminent domain to acquire the certificate, equipment, and facilities of the
carrier, or that portion of the certificate that would be affected.
- (c) A municipality may establish an intermediate transfer site for the collection and disposal of garbage, refuse, trash,
or other waste material without purchasing the certificate, equipment, or facilities of a waste material carrier
certificated by the former Alaska Public Utilities Commission or by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska. The
municipality may, without compensating a certificated waste carrier operating in the area, provide for or contract with
a certificated or noncertificated entity to provide for the collection and disposal of waste material left at the
intermediate transfer site.
- (d) This section applies to home rule and general law municipalities.
