Proposed Overhaul of Omaha's Waste Collection Would Send Yard Waste to Landfill Along with Trash

By Roseann Moring / World-Herald staff writer.

Separate curbside yard waste collection could go by the wayside in Omaha under a set of proposals to overhaul the city’s waste pickup.

Instead of becoming compost, yard waste would be collected along with trash and sent to the landfill.

In exchange for losing that service, Omahans could gain covered, 96-gallon carts for recycling and possibly a second large cart for trash collection.
