Licensed Commercial Haulers

All licensed haulers in the City of Champaign are required to collect, at a minimum, the following recyclable materials from residences with one to four units –

  • newspaper
  • glass jars and bottles
  • tin cans
  • aluminum cans
  • HDPE plastic containers

Several haulers also collect and process additional recyclable materials, which is consistent with the City Council’s goal to increase diversion of solid waste from landfills.

To ensure that all haulers are complying with the recycling requirement, a monthly report is required, detailing how much of each recyclable material was collected.

These forms must be completed 30 days after receiving your letter from the City. This is a condition of the City of Champaign hauler license. Failing to report this information may result in fines, or even suspension or revocation of the license for repeated violations.

Forms can be accessed and sent in through this site.
