Reducing waste and pollution through material management solutions

CCES supports the ability of area citizens to responsibly manage materials by advancing improved local options for recycling, composting food scraps, and the safe and convenient disposal of household hazardous waste. We also foster local solutions for waste reduction, such as reduction of single-use plastics. Further, we provide useful information and resources that assist citizens in these efforts.

Your donation helps CCES to advance safe and convenient collection options in Champaign County for potentially problematic household materials – every dollar counts!
