The Sioux Falls, South Dakota is on a mission to keep the city clean. They are accomplishing this by giving out free passes to the regional landfill. Approximately 55,000 passes were mailed to residents.

The passes allow residents to bring items like stoves, tires and construction debris to the landfill one time between April 1 and September 4 for free. Without the pass, it would cost a resident $18 to toss a load of old chairs, two mattresses and other items at the landfill. 

The city generally has a return rate of about 30 percent on the passes.
