While Waste Connections of Nebraska does not collect any hazardous waste materials (paint, solvents, gasoline, oil, etc.), we support the State of Nebraska’s efforts to properly dispose of any materials that pose a threat to the environment.
Each year, electronic waste like computers, monitors, printers, keyboards, televisions, and cell phones totals over 2 billion tons. All of these devices can be a resource rather than a waste if more businesses and consumers would recycle them instead. Materials such as glass, precious metals, copper, aluminum, and plastic can often be extracted and reused.
From local retailers to government-supported programs, there are numerous options to dispose of your electronics in an environmentally friendly manner. Your old cell phone can even be used to help a victim of domestic violence or a soldier overseas.
We’ve provided links below to help you find additional places to recycle e-waste, but if you have any questions about what not to put in your regular garbage, please contact our Customer Service department.
