Trash, recycling pickup delayed in Omaha because of the snow

{{featured_button_text}}

Trash and recycling collection was suspended Wednesday afternoon in Omaha because of the snowy weather. Collections will be delayed one day.

Residents whose garbage and recyclables usually are picked up on Wednesdays will have it collected on Thursday. Thursday’s collections will be delayed until Friday, and Friday’s will be delayed until Saturday.

The City of Omaha’s Public Works Department asks residents to make sure trash and recycling is visible and not snow-covered. Also, recycling items should be dry.

“Wet materials can be considered contaminated and not recyclable,” the department said in a press release.
