Wood waste grinding will soon begin at 1000 East Chambers Street (next to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility). As a result, Sioux Falls will permanently close this public branch drop-off site on Monday, June 24, 2013, at 7 p.m. For safety reasons, citizens are asked to stay away from sites where wood waste grinding is occurring. Closing the site will allow for more efficient grinding operations.

Public branch drop-off sites are still open at the following locations:

  • Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill (26750 464th Avenue): Hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
  • 69th Street and South Cliff Avenue (access to this site is from 69th Street): Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.

The wood waste from the grinding operation is not available to the public. However, wood mulch is available to residents at no charge at the two open public drop-off sites. Because residents are responsible for loading their own mulch, please bring bags, trash cans, shovels, or other items needed to load and transport the mulch.
