What is the procedure of waste collection and storage?

All putrescible solid waste will be drained of excess liquids and will be securely wrapped in paper or placed in airtight bags before being placed in it. The following types of batteries should be discarded following the procedures described in the Chemical Waste section of this manual. All needles, syringes, or other sharp biohazardous waste should be placed in a puncture-resistant sharp object disposal box before being placed in the contractor's waste containers. I) If the scales at the municipal landfill are not operational, the solid waste disposal fee will be based on an estimate of the number of cubic yards of solid waste, as determined by the city.

Tanks are stationary devices built with materials other than soil that are used to store or treat hazardous waste. Under no circumstances shall household appliances, household hazardous waste, commercial hazardous waste or tires be mixed with any other solid waste. Commercial solid waste collection by a solid waste collector other than the city's public works department, the sanitation collection division, must be approved by a formal agreement between the city and the solid waste collector. Waste piles are uncontainerized piles of solid and non-liquid hazardous waste that are used for temporary storage or treatment.

The schedule of solid waste rates for solid waste collection and disposal rates will be as established by resolution of the council. Incinerators are closed devices that use controlled flame combustion for the thermal treatment of hazardous waste. If biohazardous waste is placed in the contractor's waste containers, no labeling requirements are necessary. At the request of the city's public works director, solid waste collectors must provide all necessary records to verify monthly reports.

A) All solid waste shall be collected and disposed of at intervals determined by the director of public works or his designated person. Construction waste, demolition waste, industrial waste, recyclable materials, garbage, tires, and garden waste shall be disposed of in the municipal landfill or any other landfill approved by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation or will be disposed of by any other method or means approved by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. Notwithstanding the provisions of this chapter, the public works director or his designee may refuse to accept any material for collection or disposal if, in their opinion, accepting such material would be harmful or unduly burdensome to the city's collection or disposal systems. Examples of industrial furnaces are cement kilns, aggregate kilns and halogen acid kilns (they produce acid from halogenated hazardous waste).
