Mattress Recycling

Mattresses take up valuable space in the landfill and do not compact well. Mattresses are sent to a local recycler in Sioux Falls for recycling. They will be recycled and used in various new products.

To offset the recycling charge the Sioux Falls Regional Landfill now charges for each mattress and box spring brought to the landfill at $9.00 each.
