Recycling Drop-Off Locations

Glass bottles and jars may be recycled at any of the Omaha drop-off sites. The full service drop-off sites also accept all of the recyclables that are collected from Omaha’s curbside collection program. Glass bottles and jars must be kept separate from the other recyclables. You will find at least two containers at the full service drop-off sites; a PURPLE container for glass bottles and jars and a separate GREEN container for all other recyclables. At glass only drop-off sites, a single PURPLE container collects all colors of glass bottles and jars.
