After Hours Yard Waste & Recycling Disposal

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Beginning May 1, 2017, the City of Yankton Transfer Station's new after-hours yard waste & single stream recycling disposal area will be open for the public to dispose of grass, leaves, garden waste, and small sticks, as well as their recyclables, during the hours the Transfer Station is not open - 3:45 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Access to the after-hours yard waste disposal area will be just east of the Transfer Station's main entrance on W 23rd Street. The map below details the entrance and disposal area.

ONLY grass, leaves, garden waste, and small sticks will be accepted in the yard waste piles. Please sort your yard waste into their respective piles and please keep materials such as garbage, trash bags, batteries, rocks, concrete, and any other items out of the yard waste. Customers are to empty all leaves and grass from garbage bags and may dispose of the empty bags in the onsite dumpsters.

The Transfer Station will also continue to accept yard waste during regular business hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Questions may be directed to the City of Yankton Transfer Station at 668-5212.

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.
