NOT accepted at Millennium: Electronics and Appliances
It is ILLEGAL to throw electronics and white good appliances in your Sioux Falls trash bin and they are NOT ALLOWED in your recycling bin. They cause serious problems at the recycling facility and are a danger to the environment if disposed of improperly.
Where to Take Appliances:
- The Sioux Falls Regional Landfill will accept them separate from your trash for proper recycling.
- Local scrap recyclers like TJN will accept them – maybe even for some cash back.
- Check with your Waste Hauler if they provide pickup for your appliances, most likely to be recycled at the landfill.
- The EPA’s Energy Star Program also provides a list of special offers and rebates for appliance recycling through manufacturers when you purchase new Energy Star models.
- If your appliances are still working, check with local charities like Habitat for Humanity’s Restore. They will gladly accept used appliances if they are still in good condition.
Where to Take Electronics:
- Sioux Falls Household Hazardous Waste facility– free for Sioux Falls area residents.
- SEAM – For any items HHW does not accept (i.e. residential limits or business equipment) or for certified data destruction.
