According to the City of Sioux Falls, business and residential owners are responsible for removing their own tree debris from their yards and taking them to one of the four disposal sites in Sioux Falls.  Loads to these drop-off sites do not require a tarp, however any loads dropped off at the landfill will need a tarp.

If you need help removing tree branches from your yard, dial the Sioux Falls Helpline at 2-1-1.  The city is working to remove boulevard trees that have fallen.  Find out how the city determines what trees they will remove here.
