COVID-19 Has Impacted Recycling in Omaha


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Omaha, Nebraska’s recycling schedules. Due to revised pick up schedules, residents have been dumping garbage at drop-off sites and creating dump sites.

"They throw mattresses, couches, wood," Warren Anderson with FirstStar Recycling said. 

The city’s Department of Public Works will increase collection times and supply additional large containers for the recycling materials.

The Public Works Department has posted signs reminding citizens what can be recycled and the Police Department is considering increasing patrols at the sites.
