Air Quality Control
Announcement:The City of Omaha has received a second shipment of new, environmentally-friendly gas cans for free exchange. All you have to do is take your old (pre-2009), vented 2- or 5-gallon gas cans to the City's Under the Sink facility at 4001 S. 120th Street any time during their normal business hours (see here for those hours) and they will swap them for brand new cans!
