Sioux Falls Landfill Pass Now Paperless, Time For Spring Cleaning
Piles and piles of things you no longer will use and junk taking up space in your garage or outside. If there isn't a rummage sale in your future, or not donating it, take it to the landfill or recycle it.
Each year the Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill offers a free pass for residents.
You would have received it in the mail by now, but the city is changing to a paperless pass. Donny Kuper, Landfill Superintendent says, “The landfill pass is a popular program among residents and one we are happy to offer to help keep our community clean.”
“Going paperless means more labor and cost efficiencies for our team, and the new software allows more people to participate.”
Starting this week, landfill staff will scan residents’ driver’s licenses or state IDs instead of sending postcards in the mail each year.
Before you get any ideas of using it more than once the landfill pass program remains the same: the landfill pass program, which has been offered for more than a decade, provides one free pass each year per household address.
