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.
Glass recycling is now easier and more convenient. Another glass collection site has been opened. There are now four glass only drop-off sites and five full service drop-off sites. One of the glass only drop-off sites is directly sponsored by Ripple Glass and the local business district.
