What To Recycle

Single Stream & RecycleBank: Making recycling easier and more rewarding, our partnership with RecycleBank allows single stream recycling - no more sorting! All recyclables, including glass, can be combined in one container, we pickup your recycling and divide it once it reaches the plant...and you earn points for coupons that can be redeemed at local and online businesses!

Our residential and commercial recycling programs are in compliance with the landfill bans enacted by the City of Sioux Falls.

Note: Placing items that are not recyclable in your container can negatively affect your RecycleBank.
