in Lincoln – BURNING LEAVES AND YARD WASTE IS ILLEGAL

State law requires that grass and leaves be separated from household trash from April 1 until December 1, and the City reminds residents that burning leaves and yard waste is illegal within Lincoln City limits.  Those convicted of open burning are subject to a maximum fine of $500 and up to six months in jail.

Chris Schroeder, supervisor of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) Air Quality Program, said that older adults and young children are especially sensitive to air pollution.  “Burning creates a fire hazard and produces air pollution that can lead to health complications for people with asthma, lung disease, other respiratory conditions or heart disease,” he said.

In Lincoln, separate collection of grass and leaves is provided by local waste haulers for a fee.  Those who do not subscribe to the special collection have three options:

  • Haul it to the North 48th Street Transfer Station, 5101 N. 48th St.  All loads must be covered and secured.
  • Hire a lawn service.
  • Mulch and compost grass clippings and leaves.

Grass and leaves must be placed in approved containers: paper yard waste bags available from retailers; 32-gallon containers with tight-fitting lids; or 95-gallon containers provided by waste haulers.  The City does not allow yard waste in plastic bags at the compost facility because the bags do not decompose and cause litter problems.  Residents can place their grass and leaves with their household trash from December 1 through March 31.  Tree limbs, garden waste and weeds may be included with regular household garbage year-round, but some refuse haulers require that limbs be cut to certain lengths and bundled.

More information on recycling is available at 402-441-8215 and recycle.lincoln.ne.gov.  More information on air quality regulations or open burning permits is available by contacting Schroeder at 402-441-6272 or cschroeder@lincoln.ne.gov.  For more information about LLCHD, visit health.lincoln.ne.gov.

ALL-ANIMAL EXHIBITION at Great Plains

GREAT PLAINS ART MUSEUM TO OPEN ALL-ANIMAL EXHIBITION

ATTENTION: Features, Arts/Entertainment, Calendar Editors
WHEN: Nov. 3 through Feb. 16, 2018
WHERE: Great Plains Art Museum, 1155 Q St.
PHOTO: A high-resolution color photo is available at https://go.unl.edu/z525. Cutline information is provided below.

Lincoln, Nebraska, Oct. 26, 2017 – All types of Great Plains animals from bison to horses and cranes to dogs will appear in sculpture, prints, photographs and paintings in the new exhibition “Collection Critters,” which runs Nov. 3 through Feb. 16 at the Great Plains Art Museum.

Viewers will encounter several species of interest to conservation. Wildlife art can serve as a catalyst for discussion about conservation that goes beyond simply a documentary or aesthetic practice. Loss of habitat is the single greatest threat to remaining populations of pronghorns, wolves, bison, mountain lions and prairie chickens. These animals typify species severely threatened in contemporary times or ones that were once on the verge of extinction, but have since rebounded to sustainable levels.

“The show is a great opportunity to see animals from an artist’s perspective,” curator Melynda Seaton said.

“Collection Critters” includes works by world-recognized artists of the American West such as Karl Bodmer, John James Audubon and Charles M. Russell. Several Nebraska artists, including Cliff Hollestelle and Ben Darling, are also featured.

The exhibition’s opening reception will take place during Lincoln’s First Friday Art Walk from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 3. Food and drink will be served. The family-friendly night will include an animal matching activity with prizes.

The Great Plains Art Museum, 1155 Q St., is open to the public 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. Free guided tours are available. Please request tours via the museum’s website, http://go.unl.edu/plainsart by completing a tour request form.
