About Will Refuse

We are a local, family-owned refuse and recycling collection company serving Lincoln residents and businesses since 1952, when our Grandpa Joe first bought his route. He worked and added to it for many years, and in 1978 sold his route to his sons, Dave & Mike. They continued to build and expand the business, and helped Lincoln transition from throwing everything away, to recycling materials for which there is a market.

Dave passed away in 2013, and Mike retired in 2016. Now, Dave’s children have taken up the mantle and are beginning the third generation of quality, family-owned waste removal services for Lincoln residents and businesses.

We are excited to help you find the best service for your household and yard waste. We remain committed to giving you the superior service you expect.


When does my trash need to be out?
Anything you want picked up needs to be at the curb by 6am on your pickup day. Very large or heavy piles may be subject to additional charges.

Note: If you have a large amount of extra trash, make sure it is located with your trash cans. Items not located by your trash can may cause our crew to err on the side of caution, in case it’s not really trash. We can always pick it up later, but we can’t get it back for you once it has been picked up.

What days do you work, and which holidays do you not work?
We work every day but Sunday. And we work every holiday except Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

If your normal pickup day falls on one of those three holidays, the following is your make-up schedule:

Thanksgiving (always Thursday): you will be picked up the following Saturday

Christmas/New Year’s Day falls on: You will be picked up on:


Do you offer recycling?
Yes, we do! Our no-sort recycling service comes with its own 65-gallon tote that will be picked up on the same day you have trash service. You do not need to sort your recyclables. Just rinse any food containers, and collapse any boxes.

We take plastic containers (#1-5 & 7), all metal cans, aluminum foil, paper, paperboard (cereal boxes), and corrugated cardboard. Things like tissues, paper towels, clothing, etc. are not accepted for recycling. Please call our office (402-488-6419) for a complete listing of what can and cannot be recycled.

Due to safety issues, and because our recycler does not process it, we DO NOT recycle glass.
