Residential Recycling Services

First Star Recycling is proud to provide residential recycling services to the City of Omaha, Lincoln and beyond.  It is estimated that the United States throws away over $11 billion worth of recyclable containers and packaging every year.  We make recycling as simple and convenient as possible as our material recovery facility utilizes a single stream process which allows you to put all recyclables in the same bin without sorting.

 

Accepted items include:

  • Paper Products – paper packaging, magazines, shredded paper, envelopes, etc.
  • Cardboard – paperboard boxes, soda boxes, pizza boxes, paper towel rolls, etc.
  • Plastics – plastic bottles, milk jugs, deli style containers, Tupperware, etc.
  • Metal – Aluminum cans and bottles, soup cans, tin cans, steel cans, etc.
