One of our goals is to make sure every Nebraskan has access to recycling services, even for hard to recycle materials. One way we achieve this is by providing an accessible recycling directory that lists service providers and outlets in Nebraska. Our Nebraska Recycling Guide is updated every year with new listings.

We also support special collection events. In appreciation of Lincoln Earth Day on April 28th, NRC will be holding a “CHaRM” event (Collection for Hard to Recycle Materials) for electronics, secure shredding, rechargeable batteries, and clothing in Lincoln. The event will be held from 9 am to Noon on Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln. Participants will be able to stay in their car while volunteers unload materials at each stop. For more information, visit

Does your community have a special collection event coming up? Tell us about it!  Would your community benefit from a “CHaRM” collection event? We have a manual with detailed instructions on how to organize an electronics collection event, as well as connections with reliable service providers with years of experience working these events.

Check out other Earth Day events being held across Nebraska in the article below. If your community event is not listed, please let us know right away so we can share your information.

Don’t forget, Lincoln’s Cardboard Ban begins April 1, and the Nebraska Cornhusker Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America is holding its 62nd Annual Great Plains Waste Management Conference April 17-18 at the Embassy Suites in LaVista. NRC’s Program Manager, Megan Jackson will be presenting “Zero Waste In Nebraska Communities” on April 18.

Let’s all participate, celebrate, and work for a healthy, sustainable Earth, every day.
