Tongass Sanitation applies to increase rates

Tongass Sanitation in Ketchikan, through its parent company, Alaska Pacific Environmental Services, has applied to the Regulatory Commission of Alaska to increase its rates by 24 percent across-the-board.

Tongass Sanitation provides curbside garbage collection primarily outside of city limits. If the rate increase is approved, the cost of residential collection would go from about $18 to $23 a can.

Alaska Pacific Environmental Services also has proposed rate increases of varying levels for its operations in Dutch Harbor, Nome and Juneau. Juneau’s is the highest rate hike, at about 34 percent.
