Yard waste pickup season for 2019 starts Monday, March 18, 2019
(Peoria, IL) The City of Peoria’s yard waste pickup season starts on Monday, March 18, 2019. Pickup will be weekly on the same day as trash pickup.
Yard waste materials include grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs, and brush and must be set out for collection in one of the following options in order to avoid a missed pick up.
• Use plastic or metal garbage cans that are between up to 45 gallons in size, with two handles, and a tight fitting lid.
• Use wheeled carts that are either 65 or 95-gallon size. Residents are encouraged to not use the City of Peoria trash carts for yard waste. The limbs and branches cause harm on the carts and reduce the life of the City’s carts.
• Paper yard waste bags which may not exceed 30 pounds in weight.
• Tree limbs and sticks can be bundled with nonmetallic cord, such as twine, but must be less than five feet in length and less than 50 pounds.
Please label cans or carts with green “Yard Waste Only.” Yard waste stickers are available at City Hall, Public Works or any Peoria Disposal Company (PDC) location.
As with trash and recycling, all yard waste materials must be set out by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day. Set cans, carts, or materials next to your trash cart, leaving three feet of space between and avoiding obstacles such as cars, snow, or mailboxes. Any cans or carts need to be removed from the curb or alley by 5:00 p.m.
Yard waste pickup will continue through the week of December 9-13, 2019. For more information, visit PeoriaPicksUp.com or call Peoria Disposal Company at (309) 674-5176, extension 1.
