City Garbage and Recycling Pickup

The City of Neligh has a progressive city garbage program designed to entice our recycling program.  There is a flat fee of $10 per month on your city bill that goes to pay for the City Compactor, Tree Dump, and recycling.  In order to have curbside garbage pickup you must purchase garbage bags from the city office or at Thriftway at $2 per bag.  This helps to encourage recycling - if you recycle more, you will need less garbage bags thus making your garbage bill lower.

  • Curbside Pickup for garbage is every Monday by 8:00 AM.
  • Plastic tubs for recycling are available free of charge at the City Office.  No recycling pick up if it is raining.  
  • Recycling items must be seperated, click here for a list of acceptable recycling items.
