Recycling Drop Off Sites

Posted: Updated:

Kearney

Currently over 1,200 residents participate in a curbside collection of recyclables program. The Sanitation Division provides a blue 90-gallon container free of charge to residents who wish to recycle.

The City also maintains recycling drop-off boxes at 5 locations in the City:

Recycling Center

3007 E. 39th Street

Public Works Building

1919 15th Avenue

Hill Top Mall

4917 2nd Avenue (South side of Herberger's)

Bob's Superstore

620 East 25th Street (West Parking Lot)

University Heights Apts.

35th Street & 17th Avenue

The sale of recyclables, the avoidance of landfill tipping fees, and the potential of expanding this program makes its continuance and expansion a worthwhile effort.

The residential recyclables, drop-off boxes, and the corrugated cardboard are processed at the recycling building. Currently the Recycling Building processes 150 tons of material each month.

Sales of recyclables, combined with the avoidance of landfill tipping fees, generates nearly $12,000 of revenue per month from the recycling program.
