Sioux Falls Regional Landfill

 The Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill plays a crucial role in the efficient and responsible handling of waste for Sioux Falls and the surrounding communities. Waste haulers are licensed to transport waste from homes to the landfill. Residents can also bring their own loads and receive one free annual pass.

The Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill annual free pass program is changing! Instead of receiving a postcard that served as a physical pass, Sioux Falls residents will now scan their current driver's licenses or state IDs to redeem their landfill pass.

Mattress Recycling

mattress recycling

Mattresses take up valuable space in the landfill and do not compact well. Mattresses are sent to a local recycler in Sioux Falls for recycling. They will be recycled and used in various new products. To offset the recycling charge the Sioux Falls Regional Landfill now charges for each mattress or box spring brought to the landfill at $13.00 each.
