The City of Kearney’s Sanitation Division would like to notify Kearney residents of the various ways they can assist with spring cleanup. If you only have a trash container worth of stuff to toss, Sanitation is doing a one-time extra trash collection during the month of May. If you have just a few larger items, schedule a Special Item Pickup, or if you have more, consider renting a dumpster or a roll-off box. More information for all the services can be found below.
Spring Cleaning Extra Trash Pickup – The Sanitation Division will be conducting a one-time extra trash collection during the month of May for residential uses (not available for commercial businesses). See the following information to determine when your extra pickup is scheduled:
- If your residence is south of Hwy 30 and east of 2nd Avenue, your extra collection will happen on Friday, May 5.
- If your residence is south of Hwy 30 and west of 2nd Avenue, your extra collection will happen on Friday, May 12.

**Please have your residential container at the curb for collection by 7 a.m. on the scheduled day. This special extra collection will not be rescheduled if the container is not at the curb for collection.
Special Item Pickup – The City of Kearney Sanitation Division offers a “Special Pickup” service to its residents. This service can be used when the resident has bulky items that need removed from the property or when the trash to be collected is greater than what a residential trash container can hold. A fee of $30.00 is charged per 15 minutes of collection time, for this service, with a $30.00 minimum. To schedule a Special Pickup, please call the Sanitation Division at (308)233-3206.
Dumpster Service – A three-cubic yard container can be rented for cleanup. A container can be rented with an $80.00 deposit, $40.00 delivery fee, $40.00 empty fee (per empty), and a $1.55 daily rental fee. If a container is reserved, for 7 days or less, in the month of May, the delivery fee and daily rental fee will be waived. Call the Sanitation Division at (308)233-3206 for more information and to schedule.
Roll-off Box Service – A 30 cubic yard open top roll-off box can be rented for cleanup. A roll-off can be rented for a $137.00 empty fee (per empty), $35.00 per ton of waste, and a $3.00 daily rental fee. The roll-off should only be filled to the box height, so it can be tarped for transportation to the Landfill. Please note, roll-off boxes are limited. Call the Sanitation Division at (308)233-3206 for more information and to schedule.
Free Landfill Month – The City of Kearney is also hosting free landfill month during the month of May. Please read the separate press release for additional information and details.
