2018 Single Stream Recycling Collection Calendar


The City of Scottsbluff now offers single stream recycling to residential customers as well as businesses.  All residents and businesses are encouraged to participate.  There are a limited number of containers available and they are handed out on a first come first serve basis.  If you would like to participate, please contact Environmental Services at 630-0985 between the hours of 7:30 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

The City of Scottsbluff now dumps the recycling containers on both the east and west side of the city on a weekly basis.  This should clear up the scheduling confusion we have had in past years.  There are ten (10) scheduled holidays that the City observes during the year.  Please note pickups will be on different days during those weeks.  Schedules are available at City Hall, Environmental Services, Public Works, and online.

Recycable items can be dropped off at the Environmental Services facility located at 609 E. 2nd St.  The facility is open for drop offs from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.  After hours, items can be put in the recycling building.  Everything must be sorted prior to drop off at either time.

There are three recycling trailer locations throughout the City where items can be dropped off.  Those are:

  • Panhandle Coop - 401 S. Beltline Highway W.
  • Regional West Medical Center - 4021 Ave. B
  • Western NE Community College - 1601 E. 27th St.

The City accepts electronic equipment.  Click here for a list of what is accepted.
