The state Department of Health has approved a plan to convert the Alaska Waste site at Skagway, which is located in southcentral Alaska, to a landfill.
The plan calls for using landfill technology to remove up to 250,000 tons of trash annually, and to build a new facility at the site to process the waste.
This facility is expected to be completed by early 2019.
The state Department said the facility will be used to dispose of approximately 2 million tons of waste annually, which would be the largest amount of waste ever produced at the facility.
The landfill will also be used for the storage of agricultural waste, fish, wildlife, and other environmental resources, and it will be able to process up to 2.5 million cubic yards of waste per year.
This will provide a sustainable source of waste that is environmentally friendly and has no impact on the environment, according to the announcement.
The project will be funded by a $4 million grant from the Alaska Environmental Protection Agency and a $2 million grant by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The state is also seeking to raise $1 million through a state contribution.
