The City of Yankton provide residential solid waste and recycling pick-up for approximately 4000 residential locations.  Please have your recyclables and solid waste (one black 95 gallon roll cart for garbage and one red 95 gallon roll cart for recycling) set out before 7:00 A.M., on your scheduled collection days.

For garbage and recycling collection questions please call 605-668-5211.



Transfer Station

The Transfer Station exists to provide environmentally safe solid waste and rubble disposal for the city of Yankton and Yankton County.  The Transfer Station also provides for the processing of recyclable materials.  The agreement for Joint Powers Solid Waste Disposal was established in April 1994.

Transfer Station Hours:
Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Summer Grass Clippings & Branch Disposal
After hours drop off 3:45 p.m. - 8:00 a.m.
Beginning the first Monday in May and ending the first Thursday in November.


Transfer Station Schedule Change: Beginning April 11th, 2020 the Yankton Transfer Station will be closed on Saturdays, but remain open Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-3:45 p.m.  The after-hours location will still be available for yard waste, branches, and recycling.  The schedule change will allow crews to better practice social distancing on weekly collection routes.  Please make sure your garbage and recycling carts are placed by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day.  The changes may impact the time of day your carts are collected, but your collection day will stay the same.

For Transfer Station and waste drop-off questions please call 605-668-5212.
