Trash, Yard Waste & Recycling Program for Bellevue Residents

This page outlines the current guidelines for trash, yard waste and recycling collections at the curbside. You can also review the Papillion Sanitation Collections Guidelines Flyer that contains this information as well as allowed recycling material guidelines.

The City Contract for trash, yard waste and recycling is currently held by Papillion Sanitation & Recycling Services for all single-family and duplex-family residents within the city limits. For local business and Bellevue residents not receiving curbside services, the City of Bellevue offers two public recycling drop off sites in Bellevue for both typical recyclables and for glass.  The locations are at Haworth Park, 2502 Payne Drive and at Hastings Banner Park, 5005 Virginia St.  Container glass can also be taken to RiverCity Recycling, 6030 S 60th St., Omaha.

The City of Bellevue opens its Tree Dump to Bellevue Citizens for free disposal of tree related debris on the last Saturday of every month from 8am to Noon. The Tree Dump is located at the gated entrance just north of 8902 Cedar Island Road, intersecting at Rose Lane. Limbs and branches collected at this site are mulched for reuse at public parks, school and other locations.

If you have questions or concerns with your service, please contact Papillion Sanitation Customer service line at 402-346-7800 or send an email to olppapillion@wasteconnections.com. You may also contact Bellevue Public Works at 402-293-3135 from 7:00 am – 3:30 pm Monday – Friday with questions or to order an 18-gallon recycling bin.
