Recycling Collection Services

The average person generates 4.5 pounds of trash every day – about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. Although the EPA estimates that 75 percent of solid waste is recyclable, only about 30 percent is actually recycled. Although recycling is the most common method of plastic waste pollution prevention, less than one percent of all plastics products are recycled in the U.S. Americans throw away 2,500,000 plastic beverage bottles every hour! This is why we include recycling in our basic services.


Help Us Make a Greener, Healthier Nebraska!

Recycling is the best way to avoid a long term impact on the environment and on our community due to your waste. Gretna Sanitation makes recycling easy. There's no sorting, just a recycling bin to fill with your recyclables and wheel out to the curb on your pickup day. We offer the option to swap your recycling and trash bin sizes so you can recycle even more!
