Garbage Collection

The City of Pierre provides residential solid waste collection. Collection days for residential collection are either Tuesday or Thursday. View the collection routes to determine your pick up day.

Garbage Bag Purchases
We offer a durable 33-gallon garbage bag. The fee covers the cost of the bag, disposal fee, and collection fee. If you miss your collection day, you can bring your bag to the Solid Waste Facility for no additional fee. If you want to put your bag into a refuse container, contact us and we will pull it out of the container for you.

Garbage bags can be purchased at two convenient locations during their normal operating hours:
  • City Hall
  • Solid Waste Facility

Yard and tree waste can be dumped in the appropriate location (areas are designated and signed). Please empty yard waste from bags; there are trash cans for the bag disposal.
