Electronic Recycling Event

The 2016 fall electronics collection event has now concluded.  We anticipate having another collection event in spring 2017.  PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL UTILIZE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM AGAIN, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK IN EARLY SPRING 2017 FOR UPDATED INFORMATION.  Requiring residents to register online for a time slot helps us provide a more productive event and reduce wait time.  Any questions can be directed to Nichole Millage at 217.403.4780.

City staff will continue to work with our government partners to find alternative methods and locations for recycling electronics (specifically TVs) 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,

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.
