Apartment building recycling in Champaign by late 2010 OK'd

CHAMPAIGN – Residents of Champaign multi-family apartments are expected to have recycling available next year.

Champaign city council members were unanimous in support Tuesday night of directing city staff to proceed with a multi-family recycling program. The program is not expected to be implemented until November 2010.

Champaign currently requires recycling for apartments with four or fewer residents, but no recycling is required for five or more residents. As proposed, the city will provide recycling for multi-family buildings, sororities and fraternities.

The city will contract for recycling collection. The city will provide recycle collection bins. The city will bill property owners – estimated at $2.50 per month per dwelling unit and $2 per month for group housing. The city will then close its current drop-off recycling.
