Solid Waste Collection

Champaign City ordinance requires every household to sign up for weekly solid waste pick-up.  All solid waste (trash, recyclables, etc.) collection in the City of Champaign is handled by private solid waste haulers who are licensed.

Curbside Recycling

City ordinances provide for curbside recycling to all citizens who live in a single to four-plex residence. This service is provided by the waste hauler who is required to provide recycling as part of basic service and must accept the following materials:

  • newspaper
  • glass jars or bottles
  • tin cans
  • aluminum cans
  • HDPE plastic containers (#2)

Haulers must provide curbside collection of recyclables at least once a week and can not count materials toward the “per container cost” of service. Information about additional recycling accepted (such as additional plastic #'s) and what is actually done with the recycling once it is picked up is provided in the notes below and in the "Recycling policy" on individual services wiki pages.

Compost Pickup

Champaign-Urbana does not currently have a compost pick up for food waste, but they do pick up Yard Waste on a fixed schedule. See the schedule forChampaign or Urbana.
