first_imgKPD Police Chief Dave Ross: “I would encourage people to dump  their fish waste back into the water or appropriately dump them at the Borough facilities,  I think there is good reason for that. We don’t want a mess around, and it could also be a bear attractant.”  FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享With salmon arriving now in most local area fisheries, anglers and dipnetters are reminded to take care to dispose of fish waste properly. Discarding fish waste on public or private property or along roads, pull-offs, and trails can attract bears into residential areas and result in fines ranging from $300 to $1,000. The Central Peninsula Landfill located at Mile 98.5 Sterling Highway 2.5 miles south of Soldotna accepts fish waste free of charge from 8am to 5:45pm seven days a week.center_img Chief Ross: “I hope we have good safe week on the fishery this week, and it’s been a pretty safe one so far. So, keep the accidents down and properly dispose of your waste, and all of those things that make it go smoothly.” Fish waste can also be deposited at other Kenai Peninsula transfer facilities, including those in Cooper Landing, Kasilof, and Ninilchik, but in smaller quantities; all fish waste must be bagged in plastic trash bags with a limit of two bags dropped off per day.last_img read more
