The Omaha Spring Cleanup (OSC) is a joint effort between the City of Omaha, Keep Omaha Beautiful, and participating neighborhood associations. The free event provides Omaha residents with the opportunity to recycle or dispose of large/bulky items that are not accepted through curbside trash and recycling services (such as old furniture, appliances, tires, and mattresses).
This year, the event will take place during six consecutive Saturdays: April 14, April 21, April 28, May 5, May 12, and May 19. A full schedule with assigned site locations will be announced in March 2018. Visit the map to find your location: dogis.org/springcleanup/
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 of Omaha’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.
