Recycling in Sioux Falls

Sioux Falls Metal Recycling Guide

posted in Recycling Rules by

Scrap metal does not belong in your recycling bin. 

The only metal accepted in the Sioux Falls recycling bin is empty metal cans, tins and clean aluminium foil. That’s it. 

Everything else can damage the recycling equipment which is specifically designed to sort the “yes” materials. Items that aren’t recognized by the system can cause jams, injuries and downtime.

Large items destroy machinery and hurt employees. Wiry items get wrapped around equipment and shut us down. Small items contaminate otherwise clean material and can be very sharp, presenting dangers to employees.

Take scrap metal to a scrapyard, you might even get a few dollars back!
