Recycling

In the early 1990’s, The Shrader Family, owners of Premier Waste Solutions, were one of the first in the Greater Omaha Metropolitan Area to implement curbside recycling pick-up. Today, we provide an all-in-one, single-stream program that makes recycling easier and more convenient for customers.  This program allows residential and commercial customers to divert recyclables from their waste streams and more importantly, from our landfills.  We will help businesses assess their waste streams and assist in the implementation of a comprehensive recycling program.  Community recycling efforts will save landfill space and conserve our natural resources.
