Pill Bottles

Accepted in City of Omaha Recycling

MH Pill Bottle Group

Place EMPTY plastic pill bottles in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

  • Rinse if necessary to remove contents
  • Labels, lids, and caps can stay on (black out personal information with a permanent marker)
  • Keep items loose and do not bag

Tip: Plastic bottles shorter than 3" (or the palm of your hand) should be placed inside a larger plastic container of the same number. (For example: A small #5 bottle can fit inside a larger #5 bottle that you plan to recycle.)
