Garbage and Recycling Pickup

North Sioux City coordinates the weekly collection of our solid waste, better known as garbage or trash. Receptacles need to be placed at the curb with nothing obstructing the ability to reach your container. Two 90 gallon carts are included at the base garbage rate. You may request additional cart(s) at $2 each, per month. Recycling containers are available at no additional charge. If you find you have more recyclables then can fit in your container, contact the city office to request an additional container.

Garbage that can be placed in carts are household garbage, grass cuttings and leaves. Do not bag grass or leaves, just place them in with your other garbage. Tree limbs will be accepted if smaller than 4' in length, placed inside the container and the lid is able to close. Your cart will not be dumped if it contains ashes, dirt, cement, building supplies, appliances or tires. Items left beside your cart will not be picked up.

Garbage and recycling are picked up the same day each week, but at different times during the day. Carts need to be put out before 5 am the day of pick. Pick up days are:

Thursdays – McCook Lake
Fridays – North Sioux City

For any changes to your services, please contact City Hall @ 605-232-4276.
