At Your Disposal

At Your Disposal by the Vermillion Solid Waste Department Free Disposal of Old Tires � Waste Tires � Junk Tires

If you have waste tires, the Vermillion Landfill will take them free of charge until Oct. 5. The state of South Dakota is providing one more "Waste Tire Clean Up" across the state in an effort to reduce the threat from West Nile Virus. Get rid of all waste tires now. Tires may be delivered to the Vermillion Landfill or to the Missouri Valley Recycling facility during operating hours.

The City of Vermillion Solid Waste Department operates the Vermillion Landfill and the Missouri Valley Recyling (MVR). In the weeks to come, At Your Disposal will provide information on waste and recycling to help you to become a better citizen.

Jacque Cousteau believed that environment and economics must work hand in hand and balance in order to achieve a healthier planet. Your city Solid Waste Department strives toward maintaining this balance. You, as resident of Vermillion, can help us achieve the balance. Did you know that no tax dollars are spent on landfilling or recycling? The full operations are supported by the landfill tipping fee (gate charge) and the recycled product sales. At Your Disposal's objective is to help you become an even better recycler, which in turn will help us to achieve a stronger environmental/economic balance. In the weeks to come, we will be exploring each product category recycled in Vermillion and explaining the do's and don'ts of recycling.

First of all, recycling in Vermillion is "Drop Off" at the MVR facility, which is located at 840 North Crawford St. (east end of Cherry St. before the bypass bridge turn north). Recycling hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to noon. The facility provides literature explaining our programs. Please stop and pick some up or ask any of the personnel for assistance. You may also visit the Web page and go to "Departments/Solid Waste" or call 605-677-7076.
