Champaign council approves 5-year $1.56 million contract for multifamily recycling
CHAMPAIGN – The city council on Tuesday night took another step toward its planned multifamily home recycling program, which is scheduled to begin toward the end of this year.
With its low bid of $1,558,200 during the next five years, or $311,640 annually, Allied Waste Transportation won the city contract to collect a list of recyclable items at multi-unit complexes.
City officials hope to divert 2,600 tons of waste annually from landfills with the new program.
