Cooperative Recycling in Downtown Lincoln
Working with the City of Lincoln and the Downtown Lincoln Association, WasteCap Nebraska has successfully assisted three downtown Lincoln businesses in developing a shared waste and recycling program. The Bourbon Theatre, the Fat Toad and Yia Yia’s didn’t previously have any formal hauling program for recyclables.
The cooperative recycling will divert 8 cubic yards of recycling from the landfill per week! Along with the businesses saving money switching to the shared waste and recycling program.
The Bourbon Theatre, the Fat Toad and Yia Yia’s shared recycling efforts were implemented on Feb. 1, 2017. Grant funding for this project was provided by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
