Sioux Falls is growing, and so is our Waste!

Community Recycling News

The new estimated population of Sioux Falls was released at 169,800 people, 4,000 more souls than a year ago…. At Millennium, we’ve definitely been affected by this growth. In 2004, we recycled 21,761 Tons of material, as of 2013, we were at 51,286 Tons! That’s more than double in less than 10 years. That’s equal to 3.31 Tons of waste per person per year (about 6,600 pounds!)- and that’s just recycling, not including any garbage or compost! Remember Reduce is at the TOP of the waste hierarchy. As we continue to grow, lets continue to make recycling and waste minimization a priority in our community!
