"Recycling conserves resources, saves valuable landfill space and helps create jobs," said City Recycling Coordinator, Gene Hanlon. "In addition to the network of 29 multi-material recycling drop-off sites in Lincoln and Lancaster County, local waste haulers and private recycling businesses offer convenient recycling services for residents and businesses for a nominal fee.

A number of local businesses and organizations also accept many household items, such as appliances, electronics, rechargeable batteries, tires, compact fluorescent lamps and child safety seats for recycling."
