Future Collection Contract

At the regular City Council meeting on August 27, 2019, the Council approved FCC Environmental to be Omaha's next solid waste collection contractor.

The Council selected a two cart system, where one 96-gallon cart is for recycling and a second 96-gallon cart is for waste (garbage and yardwaste).

In addition the Council approved a supplemental seasonal yardwaste collection contract where for six week in the spring and six weeks in the fall when additional yardwaste will be collected and composted.

Recycle Icon


Got a green bin? Great! Need a green bin? Let us know. In 2017, Omahans recycled more than 11,000 tons of material. Let’s double it this year!

Garbage Icon


Did you know you’re limited to five containers of garbage per week? Or that you need to put it out by 6am on collection day?

Special Waste

Motor oil. Tires. Antifreeze. These are just a few of the things you can’t get rid of via your garbage can or recycling bin.

Yardwaste icon


Mixing yardwaste with garbage is a no-no. There’s no limit to properly marked yardwaste, and it doesn’t count against your five-container limit.
