Harbors in Alaska’s coastal communities are hubs of economic and social activity.  They are integral to our way of life, and our quality of life.  Harbors are the gateways to commercial, sport, and subsistence fisheries, aquaculture operations, recreational opportunities, and in many places primary transportation in and out.

Routine activities in and around our harbors (including hull repair, engine maintenance, fish cleaning, and fueling) can generate significant amounts of pollution.  While these industrial-type of activities are a necessary component to a working harbor, there are ways to do our daily business that are cost-effective and can minimize negative impacts on our environment and our fisheries.

Our primary goal is to collaborate and share cost-effective and efficient ways to help harbors and boaters manage wastes and pollution around the state.

Look through our website and see how Alaska Clean Harbors can help you and your facility reduce pollution, reduce costs, and increase compliance through a variety of cost-effective measures!

We are here to serve YOU – don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or ideas.
