As the fall semester begins at the University of Illinois, the City of Champaign is holding a Cardboard Dumpster Event for Feed the Thing During Move In/Out from August 14-25, 2015. Cardboard dumpsters will be placed around the campus town area with the purpose of providing students living in multifamily buildings (apartments, condos, & co-ops with five or more units), fraternities, sororities, and other shared housing the opportunity to properly dispose of cardboard that does not fit into their ‘Feed the Thing’ carts. This helps reduce the amount of materials entering the waste stream.
Participants in the Feed the Thing recycling program can drop off their cardboard to any of these locations on the following days:
400 E. Chalmers between Fourth and Fifth Streets
500 S. Third between Springfield Avenue and Healey Street
600 E. Clark between Sixth and Wright Streets
100 E. Chalmers between First and Second Streets
300 E. Chalmers between Third and Fourth Streets
800 S. First between John and Daniel Streets
Champaign residents not in the multifamily recycling program have curbside recycling collection available to them through their solid waste hauler as part of their basic service. Residents should contact their solid waste hauler directly for more information.
