Beginning this Saturday, October 1, the City of Sioux Falls will open its two leaf and branch drop-off sites to assist with fall cleanup. The two leaf and branch drop-off sites are located at:

• 1015 East Chambers Street, west of Cliff Avenue by the Household Hazardous Waste Facility and Public Works Street Division. Access is available from North Drive to East Ash Street to Chambers Street, and from North Cliff Avenue to Chambers Street. The driveway just south of the gas pumps at the Street Division is the only access point.

• 100 North Lyon Boulevard, west of the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds. Access is available from West 12th Street to North Lyon Boulevard, and from West Madison Street to North Lyon Boulevard. The driveway north of the railroad crossing is the only access point.

The drop-off sites will be open from Saturday, October 1, through Sunday, November 27, (Closed Thanksgiving Day).

Hours of operation are:
• Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Sundays, 12 noon to 5 p.m.

Cost is $3 per load for cars, pickups, full-size SUVs, vans, or two-wheel trailers. Larger loads, lawn service companies, and commercial businesses will not be accepted at the temporary drop-off sites and must go directly to the Sioux Falls Regional Sanitary Landfill.

Branches must be placed in a pile separate from leaves. Leaves must be removed from plastic bags. All loads must be tarped or in an enclosed vehicle. Plastic bags, large trees, stumps, rubble, and household garbage are not accepted.
