Your organization or business can help reach the City of Lincoln's goal to reduce 80% of the readily recyclable materials from reaching the landfill by 2040. This goal is laid out in the Climate Action Plan and can be found in the reduce waste section. Readily recyclable materials can easily move into the recycling stream with the help of your organization.

Following completion of a Recycling Leader application and on-site visit, your organization will be designated one of four “Recycle Lincoln” leadership levels.
