Welcome to the Village of Firth, NE
Firth is a great community with a population of just over 600 located in southern Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA. We have a strong community, well-based in the Norris School District, two active churches, two banks, two restaurants, multiple businesses, a beautiful main park with a splash pad, basketball court and playground, a very nice ball field complex, plus lots of opportunities to be involved in the community. All our streets are paved and our water and sewer systems are up to date. Firth has a new housing development with Phase 2 being platted. We are the best kept secret of small communities in Lancaster County. Come visit us, eat at one of our restaurants, play in our parks, or just enjoy the small town atmosphere.
You are always welcome in Firth - a great place to be!
David L. Hobelman

Firth Recycling Collection Site to Close November 2
The Firth Recycle Collection site has been provided through an interlocal agreement between Firth and the City of Lincoln since 2008. Due to the extremely high cost of servicing recycle collection sites, the decision was made to close all recycle collection sites in Lancaster County. All but 4 to 5 of the Lincoln sites will be closed as well. Due to this decision, there will no longer by a recycle collection site in Firth. All residents are welcome to take their recyclables to any of the 4-5 Lincoln collection sites.
