  • Plain paper envelopes are also ok
  • Keep items loose and do not bag

Tip: Reference the Batteries section of the Omaha Recycling Guide for proper battery disposal. If alkaline, discard in garbage.

NOT ACCEPTED: Cards with Sound Components Inside; Cards with Metallic Decoration or Glitter

DO NOT place cards or envelopes with shiny foil, metallic decorations, or glitter in a City of Omaha curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container. DO NOT recycle cards that still have the musical components intact.

Discard these types of cards in the garbage.
