The climate is changing now! We should too. Citizens’ Climate Lobby is working towards legislation that would:
- Place a fee on fossil fuels at the source: well, mine or port of entry.
- Distribute the net revenues to U.S. households to offset higher energy costs.
- Include a border tariff adjustment to discourage businesses from relocating where they can emit more CO2. This will also encourage other nations to adopt equivalent carbon pricing.
Join in for a 1-hour informational conference call on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.

“Recycling Markets in Omaha and Beyond” with Lee Cornell of Firstar Fiber
WHEN: Thursday, October 25th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: First United Methodist Church (7020 Cass St.) (Enter north door “Education” wing)
With China no longer purchasing plastic waste from the United States, the recycling markets have been in turmoil in recent months. In many cities, unwanted plastic is tossed right into the landfill with the trash. Join the Nebraska Chapter Sierra Club to learn about the challenges facing our Omaha recycling processor Firstar Fiber. Lee Cornell, Marketing and Sales Manager for Firstar Fiber, will give us an update on how Firstar is coping with these market forces, as well as some insight in to what’s happening in other cities in the U.S.
Sierra Club programs are free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.

Free Tire Recycling
WHEN: Saturday, October 27th, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: Baxter Arena (2425 S 67th St.) (Parking Lot #26, far southwest corner)
Tires can be a costly and inconvenient item for Omaha citizens to dispose, leaving many tires improperly dumped. This event allows citizens to recycle their tires for free, minimizing illegal dumping in our city. Tires must be removed from the rim. This event is for City of Omaha residents only, businesses are NOT permitted to utilize this resource. Bike tires are not accepted at this event. They should be discarded with regular household garbage.
While there will be volunteers helping, it is the responsibility of the owner to unload tires. There is no limit to the amount of tires you bring as long as they are personally generated tires (not from a commercial entity). If you’re bringing more than 50 tires, please let KOB know ahead of time by emailing HelloKOB@cityofomaha.org or call 402-444-7774.
