Welcome to Wasteline, Omaha’s solid waste program run by the Omaha Public Works Department.
The services provided by the solid waste program are funded by the City’s general revenue fund. The general revenue fund is made up of property tax from all property and sales tax from all sources. The total solid waste services annual budget is $32-million, and the City’s contract with FCC Environmental for collection and disposal consumes 85% of the solid waste budget. All the services that are provided include:
- Residential garbage, recycling and yardwaste collection
- Recycling drop-off sites
- Neighborhood spring cleanup
- Neighborhood fall cleanup
- Christmas tree drop-off sites
- Bulky material drop-off site subsidy
- Pedestrian litter/recycling cans in Omaha’s business districts
Because the City holds a contract on behalf of all residents of Omaha, the City is able to obtain this service at a very favorable rate. The contract began on November 30, 2020 and will continue for 10 years. The contract includes the option to extend the contract for two additional 5-year periods. Prices within the contract are adjusted each year based on the Consumer Price Index. The current prices may be found by clicking here.
Working together, we can make Omaha a cleaner, greener city for all to enjoy by:
