  • The schedule for garbage, kitchen organics, and yard waste collection service in Sidney will be changing beginning January 2, 2024 as the result of a new five-year contract with Emterra Environmental. Most residents with curbside collection service will find their collection days have changed, so it is important that community members familiarize themselves with the new 2024 Collection Schedule. The new schedule has also been mailed out across Sidney.
