Spring Cleanup – 2022

Spring Cleanup logoThe Spring Cleanup program is a joint effort between the City of Omaha and participating neighborhood or homeowner associations. The annual free event provides Omaha residents with the opportunity to recycle or dispose of large or bulky items that are not accepted through curbside waste or recycling services (such as old furniture, appliances, tires, and mattresses).

Spring Cleanup is open to all City of Omaha households. Residents do not have to be a member of a neighborhood/homeowner association to participate. Only residential/household items are accepted (commercial waste is prohibited). Residents must unload their own vehicles, no assistance will be provided.
