OMAHA SPRING CLEANUP
The Omaha Spring Cleanup (OSC) is hosted by the City of Omaha and participating neighborhood associations. The free event provides Omaha residents with the opportunity to recycle or dispose of large/bulky items that are not accepted through curbside trash and recycling services (such as old furniture, appliances, tires, and mattresses).
Each Saturday, multiple neighborhoods in a specific section of the city will accept items for disposal and recycling between 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The 2020 OSC event has not been published, please check back for an updated schedule of dates and locations.

Special Regulated Items
Appliances, tires, and lead acid batteries are accepted as part of the Spring Cleanup, but they are considered “special regulated items” so they may have collection sites that differ from your neighborhood location. See the City of Omaha’s Spring Cleanup website for more information.
Tires can be recycled at River City Recycling for a fee outside of OSC dates.
If you are a Douglas/Sarpy County resident and you need to dispose of toxic materials (paint, oil, pesticides, and other chemicals), you can drop them off for free at the UnderTheSink facility near 120th & I Streets. Visit UnderTheSink on OSC Saturdays without an appointment from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
All OSC sites will accept tree limbs, brush, and other yard waste; this material will be combined with trash items and sent to the landfill. However, if a resident would like their tree limbs and brush to be composted, they can take the material to the City of Omaha Sewer Maintenance Facility at 6880 Q Street between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on OSC Saturdays.
The following items are NOT ACCEPTED at the Spring Cleanup:
- Any items that can be collected via your curbside trash/recycling service
- Toxic materials - should be taken to the UnderTheSink facility
- Other chemicals
