Landfill & Recycling

Landfill & Recycling

The Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill (SFRSL), located approximately 5 miles west of Sioux Falls, serves the entire region. It is the largest landfill in the state and is projected to be able to accept waste until 2070.


Sioux Falls is actively engaged in finding better ways of decreasing the environmental impact of waste. In partnership with POET Biorefining-Chancellor, Sioux Falls has developed an 11-mile, low-pressure landfill gas pipeline that provides methane to help power daily operations at the 105-million-gallon-per-year ethanol plant. These efforts will help to prolong the life of the landfill and keep the community healthier and the environment greener.

Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill serves lake, lincoln, mccook, minnehaha and turner counties Sioux Falls Development Foundation reports.

Environment/Climate: The Sioux Falls Advantage

Not only is our business climate better, so is our weather. Sioux Falls has a pleasant climate with four distinct seasons; perfect for outdoor recreation. Residents enjoy lots of sunshine for biking, camping, hunting, or just enjoying one of the 80+ parks the region has to offer. On top of the great weather, Sioux Falls also has one of the lowest natural disaster risks in the US; and we are rated an ISO 1 community...one of only 130 communities in the nation...which means lower fire insurance rates for your bottom line.
