All school sites and support buildings have participated in the LPS Recycling Program since 2002.
Each school has the flexibility to decide how students will be engaged in the program. Collections are done by many different groups, such as specific grade levels, like kindergarten classes studying ‘Garbology’ or a 5th grade science class.
Other groups include school Green Teams, student councils, Community Learning Center after-school programs, and Special Education classes.

Why We Recycle
What We Recycle
The categories below are all recyclable within LPS! Items should be placed into the appropriate bin or container for recycling. Separating by category helps to ensure your items can be recycled as intended. To view the district’s complete recycling guideline presentation, click here.
Every year, Lincoln Public Schools’ newest students learn about how to reduce, reuse, and recycle!
Our team partners with Keep Lincoln and Lancaster Beautiful and the City of Lincoln Solid Waste Division to share these lessons across the district.
