The City of Champaign’s Neighborhood Code Compliance Staff will be increasing enforcement the weeks of August 18th and August 25th in an attempt to eliminate large accumulations of trash and overflowing dumpsters on campus. Property owners will be issued notices giving them 24 hours in which to remove accumulations of trash. If the trash remains after the abatement time period has passed, the City will cause the trash to be removed and the owner will be billed for all costs incurred, including an additional $100 administrative fee.
It is highly encouraged for property owners and tenants to participate in the Campus Move-In “Feed The Thing” event, a special project designed for recyclable cardboard that doesn’t fit in the blue recycling toters. Based on the success of last year’s event, the City has extended cardboard recycling opportunities. Participants can take cardboard items to any of the following locations on the specified dates for recycling:
August 18 – 23, 2013
East Chalmers Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets
August 21 – 26, 2013
South Third Street between White Street and Springfield Avenue
East Healey Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets
East Chalmers Street between First and Second Streets
East Chalmers Street between Third and Fourth Streets
East Clark Street between Sixth and Wright Streets
South First Street between John and Daniel Streets
It is hoped that all property owners and students will make a concerted effort to keeping the campus area clean during the fall semester move-in period and properly dispose of waste and recyclable materials.
