Recycling services are provided for most areas we service. Included in our recycling is one 96 gallon cart, 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 cart – 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.
Papillion Sanitation has partnered with Recycling Perks to provide an enhanced recycling incentive program to curbside recycling customers. Papillion Sanitation customers who choose the Enhanced Recycling option may register for a Recycling Perks rewards account, and earn points each time their recycling is collected. Participants may then redeem their earned points for discounts and freebies from local businesses, participate in raffles, and more. Participants can earn up to $25 in discounts and freebies each month. You must be an Enhanced Recycling customer in order to receive points from Recycling Perks. For more information, visit RecyclingPerks.com or give us a call at 402-346-7800.
This is a unique program designed to convert previously non-recyclable plastics into energy. Plastics collected through the program will be sorted at a local recycling facility and converted into energy used in cement production.
