Downtown Recycles!

Downtown is recycling! Through the work of Destination Rapid City, the city Public Works Department, Red River Waste Solutions, and the mayor's Green/Sustainable Cities Task Force, a pilot downtown recycling program is in development.
Twelve recycling receptacles will be installed along Sixth Street once construction of the streetscape is complete. People visiting the new Main Street Square and walking throughout downtown will finally have the opportunity to recycle! 

Here at FourFront, we've recently worked with Red River Waste Solutions to get a recycling dumpster in our alley. We're hoping more downtown businesses will follow our example.


  1. I am THRILLED you are doing this. Some friends and I have been trying to get this going for years. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  2. Yes, isn't it great?!

    And if you know of any businesses or building owners downtown that might be interested in getting their own recycling bin, have them call Red River.

    Thanks for reading!
