ABOUT THE #BINFLUENCERS

The #BINfluencers are a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering a sustainable community through landfill diversion.
We bring private and public stakeholders together to support a more circular economy and prevent our landfills from filling up.

Across the nation, diversion goals are being set at 50% or higher, but the Sioux Falls rate is only 20.5%.

Join the #BINfluencers to improve participation in local waste diversion, in the bin and beyond!

Our Story

Over the Years

^
2009

Began as the Sioux Falls Green Project’s “Trash Talkers”, providing litter cleanup and recycling education at community events in Sioux Falls

^
2010

After the Sioux Falls Green Project dissolved, Millennium Recycling, Inc. stepped in to sponsor the program and ensure it continued

^
2014

The “Trash Talkers” rebranded as the “Ecomaniacs” to support other local non-profits and continue recycling education, funding over 2,200 volunteers working more than 1,100 hours to increase the average recycling rate at events from less than 25% in 2014 to 48% in 2019

^
2020

With events across the community being cancelled during the pandemic, the strategic decision was made to discontinue event clean-up services and refocus on fulfilling the original mission of education

^
2022

The Ecomaniacs rebranded as The #BINfluencers, with an expanded mission to bring together organizations from all aspects of waste diversion
