Residential Garbage Collection

Our regular residential garbage collection service begins at 6:00 a.m. Monday through Friday.

The greater Sioux Falls area garbage collection subscribers should have all materials out for collection by 6:00 a.m. on the scheduled pickup day. Be sure to Choose Your
to learn your service day details.

If garbage is not out in time for regular collection, it can either be picked up the following week, or you may request a special pickup (for an additional fee).

Your monthly service charge is based on a certain size trash cart (48, 65 or 95 gallon).

To ensure extra trash or bulk items are picked up, please call the Novak office at 605-338-7126 by noon the workday before your scheduled pickup day.  There may be an extra charge for trash outside of the cart.
