When it comes to waste, it’s sometimes hard to know what goes where, and whether or not something is recyclable! Keep America Beautiful affiliate, Keep Omaha Beautiful, aims to correct this problem by providing local residents and neighbors with an easy-to-use guide.

Broken out by different waste material types, like glass, plastic bags & film, and other mixed items, the online guide provides resources for residents to find a recycling area near them. Also provided are clear instructions on how to properly dispose of hazardous materials and, on the opposite side of things, how to compost biodegradable items.

Keep Omaha Beautiful partnered with the City of Omaha and First Star Recycling to create and manage their Omaha Recycling Guide. An easy-to-use online tool, the searchable database includes hundreds of common household items, recycling information, and additional tips and resources to assist residents to properly recycle.

For information on additional recycling in Omaha, please contact the affiliate directly.
