Become a participant in the EnviroTech Pierre Curbside Recycling Program!
For an additional $8 per month, EnviroTech Waste Services offers customers a bi-weekly pickup of recyclable items as part of the Pierre Curbside Recycling Program.
The additional $8 not only pays for the EnviroTech recycling bins we provide, but also the cost of shipping recyclables to the sorting center in Sioux Falls, the cost of fuel, and for the wages of the single driver who will pick up the recycling bins with a special truck every two weeks. EnviroTech does not collect any profits from the materials recycled nor from the fee – we simply wish to do our part in catching Pierre recycling services up to that rest of the country.
Recycling is a daily activity for more than 100 million Americans and a great way to protect our environment and stimulate our economy. Recycling saves resources, prevents pollutions, supports public health and creates jobs. It saves money, avoids landfills, and best of all, it’s easy. To understand the value of recycling, we must look at the entire lifecycle of a product – from the extraction and processing of raw materials, to the manufacture of the product, to its final disposal. Recycling creates a closed-loop system where unwanted products are returned back to manufacturers for use in new products. This prevents the pollution and destruction that occurs when virgin materials – like trees and precious metals – are extracted from the earth.
The city of Pierre also provides recycle drop off boxes at Sutley's Grocery on Sioux Ave, Lynn's Dakotamart and at the city transfer station at 2800 East Park Street. With the exception of our Curbside Recycling Program, there are no additional curbside recycling services available in the Capital area.
