Lincoln has closed two recycling collection sites and plans to close two more in July, city officials announced Friday.

In June, the City announced plans to transition from 19 neighborhood sites to four or five main collection sites, which officials say will save an estimated $2 million per year.  Surveillance cameras will monitor for illegal dumping.

The four or five sites will offer 14 to 18 large, roll-off containers that hold up to 40 cubic yards of material.

Recently closed sites include:

  • A & J Recycling, 3250 North 20th Street.  Recyclers are directed to North 48th Street Transfer Station, 5101 North 48th Street.
  • Gere Branch Library, 2400 South 56th Street (cardboard only site). Recyclers are directed to the East High School parking lot, 70th and “A” streets.

Sites closing in July include:

  • Trabert Hall, South 12th and South streets. Recyclers will be directed to the Leon’s Gourmet Grocer site, South 32nd and South streets.
  • Pepsi Cola Distribution Facility, 1901 Windhoek Drive.  Recyclers will be directed to the Russ’s site at South 33rd Street and Highway 2.
