Organic Waste Composting Opportunities
In 2015, Lincoln Public Schools started an organic waste composting program.
The following firms offer organic waste collection services to Lincoln businesses and institutions:
Waste to Energy Lincoln, an Uribe Refuse Services company, converts food and yard waste into renewable natural gas to fuel Uribe’s natural gas-powered collection vehicles. Food waste collections are available independently or may be bundled with Uribe’s other recycling and refuse services into one monthly rate.
