Recycling services are provided for most areas we service. Included in our recycling is one 96 gallon bin, picked up every other week.
We encourage all residents to participate in our every-other-week recycling program. Collecting the recycling every other week means less wear and tear on your streets and lessens our carbon footprint. The more you recycle the more you benefit YOUR community. Place recyclable items directly into your bin – our recycling requires no separation of items. .
The schedule of your pickup is sent when your container is delivered. You will be assigned either a Red week or a Blue week. If you are not certain what your week is, please contact our office for assistance.
Hefty Energy Bag is a unique program designed to convert previously non-recycled plastics into energy. Plastics collected through the program will be sorted at a local recycling facility and converted into energy used in cement production.
Juice pouches, snack bags, microwavable pouches, cake mix liners, cereal box liners, laundry pouches, potato chip bags, frozen vegetable and fruit bags, squeezable pouches, form “to-go” boxes, foam cups, salad bags, plastic cups, plates, bowls and serving ware, dog and cat food bags, candy wrappers, pudding cups, straws and stirrers, and all other non-recycled bags.
You can now purchase these bags through Papillion Sanitation. Each roll comes with 20 bags and each roll is $10.00. We will even deliver them to you on your trash day. If you need some of these energy bags, please call our customer service at 402-346-7800 and your customer service representative will help you.
Papillion Sanitation has partnered with RecycleBank to reward households for recycling. We’re excited to offer this completely recharged and reinvented way to recycle. What makes this program unique is that you and your family will earn points with RecycleBank based on the amount of materials the community recycles. Best of all—there’s no more sorting required!
The amount a household recycles is converted to RecycleBank Points that are deposited into that household’s RecycleBank account online each time there is a pickup. A recycling truck identifies the correct home and account by a unique ID tag placed on a home’s recycling cart. With the RecycleBank Points deposited into their account, members can use their points to redeem for the rewards of their choice at over 1,500 local and national businesses.
Please contact Customer Service at (402)346-7800.
If you’re not recycling yet, this is the perfect opportunity to get started. If you’re already recycling, we invite you to enjoy all the added benefits of the RecycleBank Rewards program.
