Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Community Clean-up Program

The Spring Clean-up program is designed solely for Borough roadsides, Right-of-Ways, and public lands. This cleanup program is NOT meant for private property.

Groups or individuals wanting to participate in Spring Clean-up need to fill out a Community Clean-up Application. This application is available for download HERE, or it can be picked up from the Central Landfill Community Clean-up Coordinator's Office, at the Central Landfill scale house, and all Transfer Stations.

Important Information

With proper authorization, all collected items from Borough roadsides, public lands, and Borough right-of-ways will be accepted for disposal at no charge during your scheduled event.

Advertisements: The Borough will advertise a general schedule of all community clean-up events in the Frontiersman and on the Borough website and Facebook page.

Safety Gear: Groups need to let participants know they need to provide their own personal protection and safety gear.

Trash Bags: Trash bags will be provided by the Community Clean-up Coordinator. You will also be given your authorization letter for your group’s disposal of waste collected. ALL unused bags must be returned to Central Landfill or the nearest transfer site.

Dumpsters: Groups may request a dumpster for use during their community clean-up event. All groups may not receive a dumpster due to a limited supply. If you believe you will collect more than 25 truckloads of debris, please request more information on the dumpster program from the Community Clean-up Coordinator.

Waste Disposal: Groups must deliver collected waste to either their group dumpster, a Borough transfer site or the Central Landfill. You will need your authorization letter upon arriving to a Borough transfer site or the Central Landfill. You will be charged without this letter. Please provide authorization letter to scale house or gate house attendant.

Securing Your Loads: All loads must be secured upon arrival at transfer site or be subject to a $12.00 unsecured load fee per vehicle per load.
