City of Bellevue's Spring Cleanup Has Been Postponed Until Further Notice Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The City of Bellevue has announced that the City’s Spring Cleanup, that was originally scheduled for Saturday, May 9th, has been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the need to keep employees and citizens safe from possible exposures. The City will work with Papillion Sanitation to try and reschedule this cleanup date once it is appropriate to do so and those details will be released to the public.

The City realizes that there are a large number of residents taking advantage of the nice weather to do some yard cleanup work so the Publics Works Department will open The its Tree Dump to Bellevue Citizens for free disposal of tree related debris on Saturday, May 9th from 8am to 3pm. The Tree Dump will be manned during this time period but citizens will have to unload their debris themselves and only tree related debris and yard waste will be accepted. 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.

Additionally, the City of Bellevue is extending the delay for separate yard waste collection until June 1, 2020 due to the COVID -19 pandemic impact on home waste generation.   City residents may continue to use both their blue trash carts and their brown yard waste carts for landfill trash and/or yard waste material.  Both of these carts will be collected as landfill trash.  Also, The City will now be able to collect additional Yard Waste bio bags placed outside your cart.

Continuing to allow the use of yard waste carts for trash will help residents dispose of their additional trash generated during this unprecedented time, without the expense of getting a larger trash cart or an extra cart.
