Since 1980 we have provided technical and grant assistance to many recycling programs and communities state-wide. We assist hundreds of callers yearly regarding how and where to recycle a wide variety of items and materials. Through the years we have done grant work for various state and federal agencies and private foundations. We are in our 12th year administering a recycling equipment grant, state-wide, with funds from Nebraska Environmental Trust. See the grant tab to the right.
We do not operate a recycling collection center.

Jobs Are Tied to High Recycling Rate
January 2012- The Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency was asked during an appearance on the Doctor Oz Show, what is the biggest thing people could do to make the world a cleaner, healthier place. She replied, "If we would insist on a recycling rate in our country at 80, 85, 90 percent, we could do a bunch of things. Certainly we would have a cleaner environment. We would save a tremendous amount of water and energy. We would create millions of jobs because recycling, in and of itself, would become a supply chain in our country---a very domestic one. So, although it sounds simple---when you see those recycling bins, when people start to talk about recycling---think of it as a homegrown jobs program, an environmental program, an energy program and a water program all in one!"
