Important Roll-off Container Instructions

To avoid danger of electrocution or damage to vehicles, containers should never be positioned underneath overhead power lines.

Do not allow anyone to play in or around the containers or to block the containers.

It is dangerous to overload the containers, never pile materials higher than the top, and for heavy materials such as concrete, do not fill the roll-off container more than half full. Please email or call Novak if a container becomes damaged.

Construction & Demolition (C&D) Materials

Reducing and recycling C&D materials conserves landfill space, reduced the environmental impact of manufacturing raw materials, and can reduce overall building projects costs through avoided disposal cost.

Recent Construction Waste Projects

Going Green from the Ground Up!

We realize the importance of minimizing the impact on the environment and are taking steps to make it convenient for all of our commercial waste collection customers to "go green." By providing recycling services customized to meet the requirements of each and every construction project, we aim to make recycling smart and easy.

Here are just a few of the projects in which Novak Sanitary Service has played a key waste mitigation role.

Denny Sanford Premier Event Center

Brian Boe, Superintendent of Mortenson Construction from Denny Sanford Event Center describes this project.

Cherapa Place Project: Generating new life on an old site

The Cherapa Place was built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. It was built on a reclaimed industrial site in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls. The project recycled 80 percent of its construction waste - the concrete from the former building was even recycled and used to pave the parking area of the new building.

Recycling Results
  • Garbage: 338.25 Tons
  • Wood: 213.75 Tons
  • Cardboard: 158.5 Tons
  • Steel: 22.5 Tons
  • Plastic, Tin, Aluminum: 32.5 Tons
  • Styrofoam: 7.5 Tons
  • Mixed Office Paper: 3 Tons

Courthouse Square Project

This downtown Sioux Falls project, a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building, diverted more than 80 percent of its construction waste material from the landfill. Courthouse Square was built on an existing commercial site and a large majority of the materials from the former building were either recycled or reused.

Recycling Results
  • Garbage: 38 Tons
  • Wood: 55.5 Tons
  • Cardboard: 6.25 Tons
  • Steel: 21.75 Tons
  • Plastic, Tin, Aluminum: .75 Tons
  • Mixed Office Paper: .5 Tons

Sioux Falls Seminary

This new 45,000 square foot LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified facility, was once one of only a few with such status in Sioux Falls. From the floor to ceiling, they addressed features of the building and construction process to become more green. All of the waste was sorted and recycled, so minimum material went into the landfill.

Avera Mckennan Cancer Institute

The Avera Mckennan Cancer Institute is the largest single building project in Sioux Falls' history. Aiming for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, the building is currently registered as a LEED project. Recycling and reducing construction waste are key to maintaining this elite designation. The project is anticipated to be complete in November of 2010.

Verlin Prostrollo, Project Superintendent
Henry Carlson Construction Company

As the project superintendent for Henry Carlson Company, I choose Novak Sanitary Service for all my refuse and recycling needs for this large Sioux Falls based construction company. I use Novak’s roll-off containers for demotion debris, garbage, and recycling. Their recycling programs are the best in the area and their customer service is excellent. Novak Sanitary Service goes the extra mile.

Randy Knecht, President/CEO
Journal Group Companies

We have partnered with Novak Sanitary Service for the construction waste (roll-off) on our construction sites within their service areas. Novak’s services are always prompt and professional. We love the fact that if we ever need something, we have great local people who are available to help and just a phone call, text or email away. Novak is a strong corporate citizen as well. They give back to all the communities in which they operate with both their volunteer time and charitable contributions.


Can I place a dumpster or a roll-off in the street?

It depends on the community you live in. In Sioux Falls you will need a permit from the City Engineering Department. Your Novak representative can take care of that for you. Once the City reviews the request and approves it they will issue the permit. The City charges a nominal fee for the permit and we can add the charge to your statement.

Other communities in the surrounding area do not allow any type of container in the street and it must be placed on your property. Please call 605-338-7126 to learn about roll-off service in your area.

What is the difference between a roll-off container and a dumpster?
Everyone has a different name for these containers. A dumpster is a smaller container typically up to 8 yards and can be emptied by a front load or rear load garbage truck. These dumpsters are typically found at commercial businesses such as restaurants, convenience stores, etc. A roll-off container is larger.

We carry 12 to 40 yard roll-offs, the roll-offs are typically used for clean outs, roofing jobs, new construction and remodeling projects. If you are unsure as to what size container you need, one of our Customer Service Representatives can help you choose the right container for your job.
Can I dispose of asbestos insulation, siding, trim or lead based paint?
Yes, but you will need to first contact the Sioux Falls Hazardous Waste facility at 605-367-8695. They will assess the project and tell you how to proceed. Asbestos materials are handled differently at the Sioux Falls Regional Landfill, and their strict guidelines must be followed.
What cannot be put in the dumpster or roll-off container?

Hazardous materials such as gas, chemicals, paints, solvents, tires, oil, asbestos, car batteries and other items like medical waste, appliances or grass.
