RECYCLING

Oak River has 2 recycling bins, located on South Railway Street,  across from the Credit Union.

Rapid City has 4 recycling bins, located on the corner of Highway 24 and PR 270; at 485 2nd Avenue.

Cardale has a recycling shed, located on the North Side of Second Avenue North, the Southeast corner of the baseball diamonds.

 

IMPORTANT! It has been brought to our attention and the attention of MWM (Municipal Waste Management) that increased contamination has been taken to recycling facilities. Please be mindful of the items you are placing in the recycling containers and remember that there are people physically handling everything coming out of said containers. A good rule of thumb is; if you are not sure whether it’s recyclable, then it should be placed in the trash.
MWM drivers will be inspecting contents and may not empty a container if it is heavily contaminated. The goal is to educate not to penalize, although if the problem continues, fines will be issued! MWM is implementing a fine/contamination fee for those who refuse to comply with recycling guidelines.
