Keep Omaha Beautiful
2016 City-Wide Spring Cleanup
The Spring Cleanup is a joint effort between the City of Omaha, Keep Omaha Beautiful, and Omaha neighborhood associations. The free event provides Omaha residents with the opportunity to get rid of large or difficult to dispose of items that are not accepted through the curbside trash/recycling service, such as furniture, appliances, and mattresses.
The Spring Cleanup runs for six consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (April 16th, April 23rd, April 30th, May 7th, May 14th, and May 21st).
To determine your specific neighborhood’s Spring Cleanup date, call the Spring Cleanup Hotline (402.444.4636) or check out the City’s Spring Cleanup website at: www.wasteline.org/cleanup/.
Please note that you do not have to be a member of your neighborhood association to participate.
Appliances, tires, and lead acid batteries are accepted as part of the Spring Cleanup, but they are considered “special regulated items” so they may have collection sites that differ from your neighborhood location. See the City’s Spring Cleanup website for more information.
Large tree limbs and brush are not collected at your specific neighborhood cleanup site, but you can obtain a voucher at your site, which allows you to drop off the yard waste material for free at River City Recycling (60th & Harrison) or the Douglas County Landfill (Highway 36 and 216th Street) on the same day as your neighborhood cleanup.
The following items are NOT ACCEPTED at the Spring Cleanup: rocks, concrete, and any items that can be collected via your curbside trash/recycling service. Toxic materials (paint, oil, pesticides, and other chemicals) are also NOT ACCEPTED and should be taken to the Under the Sink facility near 120th & I Streets (www.UnderTheSink.org).
