Notice of Utility Tariff Filing

The REGULATORY COMMISSION OF ALASKA (Commission) gives notice that Alaska Waste – Kenai Peninsula, LLC d/b/a Alaska Waste (AWK), filed TA92-714, a revenue requirement, cost of service, and rate design study, for its residential service, based on a 2018 test year. With this filing, AWK is seeking no change to its current rates, through a proposed subsidization by Alaska Waste Mat-Su and Waste Connections of Alaska. Should the subsidization not be approved, AWK will request a 71.45 percent increase to revenues. In addition, AWK proposes the following changes to its tariff:

  • Remove Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, and the day after Thanksgiving Day as holidays observed by the utility;
  • To limit the amount of time that credit will be given for the suspension of service due to vacation to not exceed 2 months;
  • Increase reinstatement fee from $22.86 to $25.00; and,
  • Add residential 300 gallon tub service.

AWK proposes the following rates for the residential 300 gallon tub service:

Zone 1


1 pickup/week


1 pickup every other week


1 pickup/month


Zone 2
