QDR RECYCLING

In January 2017 the Lincoln City Council passed an ordinance that will ban corrugated cardboard from the City of Lincoln Landfill beginning in April 2018. To help our customers adjust to the recycling changes, Quik Dump Refuse is now offering single-stream, curb-side Recycling Services in Lincoln and Waverly, with collection on Thursdays. (See Residential section for holidays that may affect Recycling collection). Our monthly Recycling Services fee includes a 95-gallon wheeled tote for transport of the accepted items listed. Items not accepted should be placed in the trash.
