Welcome to the 2017 Local Recycling Resource Directory provided to you by Public Health Solutions District Health Department serving residents in Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline and Thayer counties.
PHS has a long history of program and initiatives to promote litter reduction and recycling. With limited access to recycling programs for a large portion of the PHS district, an overall low recycling rate across the state, and increasing rates of recyclable material being dumped into landfills, we feel that the time is right to focus efforts on litter reduction, recycling, repurposing, and reuse in our rural counties.
A recent study showed that Nebraskan’s spent an estimated $33.5 million in one year alone (2013), disposing of materials that could have been recycled. PHS would like to help decrease the amount of recycled items that end up in our local landfills.
The 2017 Local Recycling Resource Directory provides a list of resources in one easily accessible location regarding recycling, household waste disposal, donating of goods, material exchange and prescription take back sites. An online resource directory will also be available at www.phsneb.org and updated as necessary.
