One of the city’s most frequently used websites has a new look and more features to improve customer service.

The redesigned site, www.wasteline.org provides the latest information on the city’s solid waste services in a more user-friendly format. It includes tips to reduce waste, increase recycling and stop illegal dumping, all of which have economic and environmental consequences for Omaha.

“In 2017, Omaha citizens recycled more than 17,000 tons of material, but we can and need to do better,” said Mayor Jean Stothert. “Our goal with this relaunch is to encourage everyone to do their part in making Omaha a cleaner, greener city.”

The site is organized around the solid waste program’s four main service areas: garbage, recycling, yard waste and special waste. In the months ahead, additional content, including news features and videos designed to encourage residents to adopt new practices that lead to reducing the amount of material that goes to the landfill.

"More than 132,850 tons of waste went into the landfill in 2017, which cost taxpayers more than $3.4 million," Stothert said. "We need to work together to decrease this amount and help protect our natural resources. The time to start is now."

Residents can also use the site to sign up for free e-updates.  

www.wasteline.org will be the go-to resource for the latest information on the next solid waste collection contract. The current contract with Waste Management expires in 2020. The Request for Bids is expected to be released in mid-September.

Comments on the revamped site are welcome. Visitors can use an online contact form to submit feedback.
