October 15, 2016 Fall Recycling Event

Due to overwhelming demand, all available time slots for the Countywide Residential Electronics Recycling Event have been registered for.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have another event in the Spring.

City staff will continue to work with our government partners to find alternative methods and locations for recycling electronics and other items.

In the meantime, there are local recyclers that will accept your old electronics (besides CRT TVs) for drop off throughout the year.  Please click on the following link for further information: Where Do I Recycle Unwanted Electronics?


For information on where to recycle such items as appliances,
batteries, cellular phones, paint, and much more, 
please view our brochure

Solid Waste Collection

Champaign City ordinance requires every household to sign up for weekly solid waste pick-up.  All solid waste collection in the City of Champaign is handled by private solid waste haulers. There are nine commercial haulers that provide residential solid waste removal services in Champaign. Burning and the accumulation of garbage are prohibited in Champaign. Solid waste haulers can also be found in the yellow pages in the phone book under “Garbage & Rubbish Removal.” Materials can also be taken to the Solid Waste Transfer Station located at 915 W. Saline Dr. in Urbana. The transfer station’s phone number is 217.384.2274. There is a drop-off fee for all materials.
