City Contractor for Residential Curbside Recycling
The City of Urbana has a contract with ABC Sanitary Hauling for residential U-CYCLE collection and processing. ABC Sanitary Hauling provides service to all single-family through four-plex dwellings, approximately 8,500 units, on a weekly basis. Urbana’s U-CYCLE program began in September 1986 and expanded in April 1997. ABC Sanitary provides curbside collection to all residents, but can make special arrangements for disabled customers.
The cost of the program is approximately $200,000 annually. Funding for the U-CYCLE program comes from a mandatory recycling tax billed annually to Urbana households.
