Congrats Haulers and Welcome Newcomers!
Celebrate Recycling!

The City of Sioux Falls just released the list of the 2017 hauler recycling rates and we noticed many of our customers are close to the top! We wanted to say a big congratulations to the top performers - we are so proud to serve you!

If you are looking for ways to help increase your rate, we offer educational resources that may help. Contact us to learn more.

Let's all celebrate Earth Day this week by celebrating your recycling success!
Sioux Falls ahead of the Curve:

Lincoln, Nebraska has recently made national headlines by taking a huge step to increase recycling and banning cardboard from their landfill. As a city that has had a cardboard ban in place for years, Sioux Falls is way ahead of the curve!

Do you know what else is banned from the Sioux Falls landfill?

Let's review the city ordinance:
"Any person bringing material for deposit at the landfill, upon entry onto the landfill premises, authorizes the city to inspect the material before deposit. If excluded materials are discovered during the inspection, the city may refuse the entire load and charge the person attempting to deposit the materials the cost of the inspection."

The following materials are not accepted at the landfill and should be recycled in the Single Stream:
  • Office paper 
  • Corrugated cardboard and chip board 
  • Plastic containers #1 and #2
  • Metal containers 
  • Magazines
  • Newspaper
  • Bulk-rate mail
Welcome New Communities
Over the past year we have worked with a few new communities to make the switch to Single Stream or improve their existing programs.  We want to take a moment to welcome them and highlight their success!

We look forward to continue working with you to build your recycling programs and increasing recycling rates through education and convenience.
