Sioux Falls changes free landfill pass process for residents

There’s a change this year in how Sioux Falls residents get free landfill passes.

In the past, the city sent postcards to residents with the passes. Now, the city is going paperless. Residents can just scan their driver’s license or state ID at the landfill.

“The landfill pass is a popular program among residents, and one we are happy to offer to help keep our community clean,” said Donny Kuper, Landfill Superintendent. “Going paperless means more labor and cost efficiencies for our team, and the new software allows more people to participate.”

For residents who have moved or have a driver’s license or state ID that does not match their current address, they can bring in a piece of mail to confirm their current address.

All loads must be tarped and secured.

Free passes are still limited to one per household, according to the city. Starting this year, residents will have from now until Dec. 31 to use the pass. In 2024 and beyond, passes will be redeemable on a calendar year basis, resetting every Jan. 1.
