Residential

Marv’s Sanitary Service provides residential service within the city limits of Brandon, Corson, Valley Springs, and Rowena, plus all of Minnehaha County East of 478th Ave and South of 258th Ave.

Our household service allows you to choose a 35gal trash cart for 3 kitchen bags a week or a 64gal trash cart for 5-7 kitchen bags a week, or a 96gal for 8 - 10 kitchen bags a week.  This equates to 1,2, or 3 32gal cans if you choose to use your own cans. (Please have lids on cans, 40# limit per can or bag).  Any trash over the amount you have chosen is $2.00 a can or $1.00 a bag, payable with stickers.  Three 13 gallon bags are also equal to 1 can and are $1.00 each if extra and heavy.  Extra bags & trash without stickers will be taken and the appropriate amount will be removed from a $10.00 sheet of stickers.  The remainder of that sheet will be left for you & your account will be billed $10.00 for stickers.  If you need stickers, leave a note or call the office at 582-6766, and we will get them to you.  Because of wind and Landfill ordinance, PLEASE DO NOT put trash directly into cans or carts without containing it in bags. Pet waste must be sealed in a bag!!  Unbagged pet waste or loose trash will be left!

EXCESS GARBAGE

Please call the day before if you have anything other than household garbage.  We will take appliances, furniture, carpet, tree trimmings, etc.  The charge for these things will be added to your next bill.  Microwaves can be dropped off for free at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

COLLECTION SCHEDULE   

The trash should be out by 7 a.m.  If we missed you, call and we will get it that day or first thing the next morning.  If it wasn't picked up because of not being out on time, there will be a $5.00 charge to come back when our schedule allows ($15.00 outside of Brandon city limits) or you can have double the next week with no extra charge

RECYCLING COLLECTION SCHEDULE

Recycling is picked up on the 1st and 3rd service day of each month and should be put out by 7 am. Recycling is included in your monthly charge, and we urge you to read the Recycling page and make recycling part of your routine. Sioux Falls Landfill ordinance prohibits us from taking trash with visible required recyclables.  If you use your own containers be sure they have a tightly fitted lid (Landfill ordinance).  If you choose to rent our 96-gallon tip cart for your recyclables, remember that normal wear and tear is expected but you will be liable for damage to the cart resulting from misuse or from paint, chemicals or heat/fire, etc. 

If your recycling container is not out in time for collection, it can either be picked up during the following scheduled collection or you may request a special pick-up, which is an additional fee.

HOLIDAY COLLECTION SCHEDULE

We do not work on the following 6 holidays:

• New Years Day • Labor Day
• Memorial Day • Thanksgiving Day
• Independence Day • Christmas Day
   

Following a holiday, service each day through Thursday of that week will be delayed by one day.  Friday service is only affected if the holiday actually falls on Friday, thus causing it to be picked up on Thursday (one day early).  Click here to download the 2019 Recycling Collection Calendar with Holiday adjustments.

PAINT AND CHEMICALS

Empty paint cans or those with completely hardened paint may be placed in with your regular garbage. Remove the lid first.  Otherwise, paint and hazardous waste need to be taken to the Sioux Falls Hazardous Waste facility.

NEEDLE DISPOSAL

Needles or syringes that are not properly disposed of can be a serious health hazard. Help prevent injuries by properly disposing of needles and syringes in a puncture-resistant container. The Home Healthcare Needle Disposal Program provides free needle/sharps disposal containers through participating pharmacies.  DO NOT EVER put sharps or other healthcare related equipment into your recycling container.
