Omaha, Neb., Passes New Waste Collection Contract

The council opted for a plan that provides residents with two 96-gallon bins—one for trash and yard waste and another for recyclables.

The Omaha, Neb., City Council passed a new waste collection contract earlier this week in a tight 4-3 vote.

The council, which had been considering two different collection plans, opted for FCC Environmental’s plan, which provides homeowners with two 96-gallon bins—one for trash and yard waste and another for recyclables. In addition, a motion to add unlimited yard waste pickup for 12 weeks a year was passed in a 6-1 vote.

City Council passed the FCC trash collection bid Tuesday 4-3, which is the two-cart system. Another proposal under consideration was a three-cart system from West Central Sanitation.
