Seasonal Branch and Leaf Drop-Off Sites

Spring 2024 drop-off sites: 
The branch and leaf drop-off sites are closed for the spring season.

The Sioux Falls Regional Landfill provides free drop-off sites for residents to discard branch and leaf yard waste. The drop-off sites are offered in the spring and fall and are typically open for several weeks at a time. The opening of one or both sites is dependent upon site availability and operational support. This page will be updated seasonally as site(s) open and close.

The drop-off sites are for residential use only. Cars, pickups, full-size SUVs, vans, and two-wheel trailers are accepted. Lawn service companies and commercial businesses, and double-axel trailers are not accepted and must go directly to the Sioux Falls Regional Landfill

What to know before you go:  

  • Branches and leaves must be placed in separate piles. 

  • Leaves must be removed from plastic bags. 

  • All loads must be tarped or in an enclosed vehicle. 

  • Plastic bags, stumps, rubble, and household garbage are not accepted. 

The two sites are located at north Lyon Boulevard, near the Sioux Empire Fairgrounds, and Chambers Street, near the City’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility. When the sites are open, they are available seven days per week.
