The City of Lincoln Launches an Online Recycling Guide

The City of Lincoln’s Solid Waste Division is making it easier for residents to recycle, live greener, and stay informed of weekly trash pickups by offering an online recycling guide for Lincoln customers. Do you ever have questions like, “What should I do with my leftover paint,” or “How do I recycle this plastic bottle,” or “How do I dispose of my used sharps?” These are just some of the common recycling mysteries Lincoln residents face when they want to get rid of household items in an environmentally responsible manner.

To help the community find answers to these frequently asked recycling questions, the City of Lincoln (in partnership with Recyclist) developed a new website and comprehensive easy-to-use online recycling guide. The “Recycling in Lincoln” website will not only help local residents and businesses learn how to properly recycle or dispose of more than 250 items, but it will also provide tips and guides for sustainable living. currently features:

  • Recycling guide: Website visitors can search for local disposal and alternative recycling for over 250 items using their computer or mobile devices.
  • Collection reminders: Residents can sign up to receive weekly email reminders about their garbage, recycling and green waste collection days, and receive easy-to-follow recycling tips.
  • Tips & News: Residents can find the latest news, videos, and tips on recycling, waste reduction, and sustainable living – from reducing your junk mail in five minutes to finding the most eco-friendly way to dispose of food scraps. Also information about free take-back events happening around town for hard-to-recycle items like paint or medication.
  • Resources for sustainable living: Residents can learn how to set up a home compost pile and reduce food waste, businesses can find information on mandatory state recycling laws, and teachers can search for environmental curriculum ideas.
