Recycling Drop-Off Locations

Drop-off siteGlass bottles and jars may be recycled at any of the Omaha drop-off sites. The full service drop-off sites also accept all of the recyclables that are collected from Omaha’s curbside collection program. Glass bottles and jars must be kept separate from the other recyclables. You will find at least two containers at the full service drop-off sites; a PURPLE container for glass bottles and jars and a separate GREEN container for all other recyclables. At glass only drop-off sites, a single PURPLE container collects all colors of glass bottles and jars.

Introducing Eye Spy & Private Eye

Two surveillance trailers have been deployed to deter and protect Omaha’s recycling drop-off sites from illegal dumping, and recycling theft.

Illegal dumping includes placing recyclables on the ground and not in the container.  The City endeavors to have space available at all times, however there will be times when containers fill up more quickly than the containers may reasonably be emptied.

Omaha Public Works will work with the Omaha Police Department and the Omaha City Prosecutor’s Office to issue citations and prosecute individuals identified not properly using Omaha’s recycling drop-off sites.
