Sturgis’ Main Collection Site 
South of exit 32 on Dickson Drive 
The site is set up to accept cardboard, glass, plastic, metals, newspaper/magazines/catalogs, as well as tree branches and grass clippings. In 2011, Sturgis was awarded a $25,000 grant from the state to implement recycling; the city hopes to provide curbside collections in the future but has no current pickup in place. 

Rapid City

Rapid City was one of three towns in South Dakota to receive a grant of $148,000. The recipients of the grant were announced early in January this year, and a majority of the funds will go toward building a 30-foot fence that will trap plastic bags and garbage from blowing out of the landfill and into the community. Janice Knight, the project administrator for the Rapid City Solid Waste Division, told reporters, “Solid waste is always changing and the city is turning its focus toward recycling.” 

There are more than 15 drop-off sites in and around Rapid City, as well as curbside pickup. Residents can use drop-off sites for cardboard, paper, electronics, batteries and more. Curbside pickup should only be used for glass, most plastics and aluminum/steel cans.
