Providing education, funding and technical assistance to maximize the environmental and economic benefits of resource recovery in Nebraska
The Nebraska State Recycling Association (NSRA), a 501(c)(3) organization, has provided technical and grant assistance to recycling programs and communities state-wide since 1980. For 15 years we have administered small recycling equipment grants with funds from Nebraska Environmental Trust.
NSRA also maintains a recycling hotline where every year, hundreds of callers learn how and where to recycle a wide variety of materials.
Call 402-202-0755 for your recycling questions, or visit https://recyclesearch.com/ (courtesy of WasteCap Nebraska) to do an online search. Enter your location first, then the material you wish to recycle.
We do not operate a recycling collection center.
