Yes, we know, this seems obvious, but unfortunately we see so much of it at our facility we have to say it: PLEASE KEEP HUNTING WASTE OUT OF YOUR RECYCLING BIN.
With South Dakota hunting season in full swing, many people are disposing of animal carcasses and other non-recyclable hunting waste. Not only is it disgusting to find an animal carcass in the recycling pile, it is also a health hazard to the people who have to sort it out.
Deer or antelope carcasses are free to area residents to dispose of at the Sioux Falls Regional Landfill if under 10 carcasses, for businesses they are $50.00 a ton, any other animals are $37.00 a ton.
Thank you for thinking of the people who work at the recycling facility and keeping animal waste OUT of the recycling bin.
