Matanuska-Susitna Borough
Fire Debris

If you have insurance coverage, check with your insurance company to determine whether debris removal is covered. If covered, you may hire a contractor with a dump truck and an excavator to remove debris.

Fire debris can be hauled to the Willow Transfer Site. The Matanuska-Susitna Borough will waive fees for fire debris. For loads larger than a pickup, haul the debris to the Central Landfill near Palmer.

On many properties, metal is the bulk of the remaining debris. Two businesses have offered clean up assistance and scrap metal removal at no charge, AK Car Crushing and Recycling at 357-5865 and Schnitzer 349-4833.

Private fire debris should not be dumped in the road right of way. Please haul the debris to the Willow Transfer Station or the Central Landfill.

For more information, please contact PIO Rachael Richardson at 861-8688.
