Liquid Waste Haulers (LWH)

Liquid Waste Haulers (LWH)

LWHs can find all the necessary documents to obtain or renew their LWH license here on this page. LWH licenses are issued on an annual basis. Below you will find a table summarizing the steps required to obtain a new license or renew your facility’s current license. 

To obtain / renew a hauler license:


Submit an up to date LWH License Application Form (found on the right-hand side of this page under “Resources") along with a check for the license fee. See the fee schedule at Ordinance 110.036 (see “Resources” on the right-hand side of this page). For those haulers located outside the City limits, be sure to remember fees are multiplied 1.5. The license fee is for each vehicle. 

Step 2

The City’s Environmental Division will need the most recent copy of the required insurance policy and bond on file. The required bonding and insurance requirements are listed in Sioux Falls Ordinance 53.065 (see “Resources” on the right-hand side of this page).

Step 3

Call the Environmental Division at (605)-367-8276 and schedule an inspection of vehicle(s) your company wishes to license. Vehicles need to be fully loaded for this inspection to check for the evidence of leaks. Your company will also need to obtain Liquid Waste Disposal Coupons for waste manifesting at this time.

In addition to completing the above steps, it is important that your company is familiar with the City’s Liquid Waste Control Program Rules. It is the sole responsibility of the company to comply with all the requirements set forth within these rules.

For any questions related to the Liquid Waste Control Program contact the Environmental Division at 605-367-8276.
