Send a link to a friend
[October 24, 2013]
For the convenience of Lincoln
residents, the city landfill will be open six days a week beginning
Tuesday. 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 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:
Monday, Oct. 28
Thursday, Nov. 7
Wednesday, Nov. 20
