Recycling Drop Off Center

We accept only the following items at our Recycling Drop Off Center:

  • Cardboard
  • Magazines
  • Newspaper
  • Office paper
  • #1-#7 Plastic bottles
  • Tin food cans
  • Aluminum cans
  • Aluminum foil/pans

Unlike our curbside recycling pickup we DO NOT accept any glass at our Recycling Drop Off Center.

We do not accept: garbage, styrofoam, plastic grocery bags, plastic toys or plastic items not marked with the recycling symbol. For drop off we do not accept commingled materials or “mixed paper”. Items MUST be separated. There is a container for newspaper/magazines/catalogs and a separate container for office paper/junk-mail. Plastic bottles #1-#7 can be placed in the same container, but that is separate from the one for tin and aluminum cans.

PLEASE DO NOT MIX RECYCLABLES when using the drop off site.

Drop off Location:
Drop off containers are located on the south side of our Recycling Center at 420 Paul Ave. in Champaign.

(See the map on our Contact Us page) We recommend you take Wilbur Avenue to Fifth Street and then turn left on Paul. Containers will then be on your right hand side.

***Items for drop off should be cleaned and placed in their designated containers.
