The City of Sioux Falls makes it a point to recycle. Recycling extends the life of the landfill and gives valuable materials a second life. We want our residents to understand how to recycle, and what can be recycled. Paper, cardboard, metal cans, glass bottles and jars, and plastic tubs, jugs, and bottles can all be recycled. Hoses, diapers, and fabrics cannot. Explore the following graphics to determine which of your items are or are not recyclable.
Items must be empty, rinsed if possible. Place them loosely in your bin. Do not bag. Any bagged items go to the landfill.
*Shredded paper is the only exception to No Bags rule.
