05/15/20 Need a Place to Take Downed Trees and Woody Slash?

Remember, there’s no debris burning on the K-Pen. The Kenai Peninsula Borough, Solid Waste Department accepts wood, brush and land clearing debris at four designated locations at no charge to residents.

SITE LOCATIONS INCLUDE: Central Peninsula Landfill (south of Soldotna), Seward Transfer Station, Homer Transfer Station and Cooper Landing Community Slash Site. Here’s a quick checklist to keep it real when offloading:

  1. There are no fees associated with tree/brush disposal at our sites; however, grass and leaves are not to be comingled with the tree/brush. Look for directional signs for separate disposal areas to prevent comingling.
  2. Trees and brush shall not be brought in with other waste.  Brush shall be kept free of trash, bags, dirt, lumber, nails, etc. Keep it woody and keep it separate please.
  3. Logs must be less than 8' in length if over 4" in diameter, or less than 4' in length if over 12" in diameter.
  4. Place loads as close as possible to main pile as possible. Space is limited.
  5. Smoking is strictly PROHIBITED at any solid waste transfer site.

For the COOPER LANDING COMMUNITY SLASH SITE operated by KPB Land Management (located 2.5 miles down Snug Harbor Road on the south side): Tree parts, leaves and grass only, no solid waste shall enter this site. No commercial use except by special permit.
