Send a link to a friend
For the convenience of
Lincoln residents, the city landfill will be open six days a week beginning
Tuesday, Oct. 29. Landfill hours will be Tuesday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to
3:50 p.m., and closed on Mondays.
The landfill is specifically for
landscape waste. Trash dumping will not be permitted there.
With the new city agreement for
commercial mulching, products brought to the landfill by residents
should be separated into two categories: wood products and lawn
waste, such as plant material and leaves.
Wood waste for mulching is defined
as logs, limbs or brush. All wood materials for recycling must be
free of all metal or foreign debris, excluding nails and bolts
three-eighths inch or smaller. Logs and limbs should be cut to a
maximum length of 4 feet.
The landfill will maintain a
six-day-a-week schedule through Tuesday, Nov. 26. Afterward the
schedule will go back to open hours Saturday and Wednesday from 8
a.m. to 3:50 p.m.
The city of Lincoln will also do
free leaf pickup inside the city limits. Pickup dates will be
scheduled by ward and are as follows:
