SPRING CLEAN-UP   MAY 5-9, 2014

The City of East Peoria will hold the semi-annual city-wide cleanup May 5-9, 2014. This pick-up is only for residents that have their refuse picked up by the City of East Peoria. Additionally, junk may only set out at residences that are occupied.  Junk and large items such as couches, mattresses, etc., will be picked up the same day as trash collection.

Junk and garbage must be separated and placed behind the curb in the approximate location of regular household refuse. These items must not be set out until the weekend prior to pickup week. If the junk is not picked up on the regular day, it will be picked up the next day. 

Accepted items: Household items such as furniture, mattresses, and other items.

Not accepted: TVs, computers, any small electronics, tires, white goods, water heaters, water softeners, construction and remodeling materials (shingles, siding, windows, wood, wallboard or tile), landscaping waste including leaves and grass clippings, and hazardous waste such as paint, pesticides, gasoline and motor oil.

Appliances
Residents are being asked to contact TNT Recycling in order to dispose of washers, dryers, etc. correctly. TNT Recycling may be reached at 635-4642.

Electronics
Due to new EPA regulations, electronics must be disposed of by a licensed recycler.  Waste Management in East Peoria (the former landfill location) will accept electronics at no charge.  For more information, call 694-0295.  To obtain a list of licensed recyclers in this area, go to:

Automotive Batteries
Automotive batteries can be taken to most battery retailers. 


Brush Collection

Tree limbs and brush will be collected for free by the city from May 5-9, 2014. Tree limbs must be stacked with the ends facing the curb. Nothing over 3 inches in diameter or longer than 4 feet will be accepted. Leaves and grass clippings are not included. Brush pick-up will occur on residents' regular garbage collection days.  Those residents interested in a seasonal subscription for landscape waste may contact Waste Management at 1-800-796-9696.


Tire Disposal

Tires cannot be set out during clean-up week. East Peoria Tire & Vulcanizing Co., 2801 N. Main Street and other tire companies will allow residents to drop off tires for a fee. Tires must be free of water and dirt and off the rim.

Recycling
Containers are available at the Public Works Building located at 2232 E. Washington St.  Each household is allowed 2 free containers.  If residents desire more than the limit, each container and lid are sold for $14.50 each.

Clothing
The city is asking residents to consider donating any clothing items residents wish to dispose of to Goodwill or Salvation Army, or any other organization that will distribute these items to those in need.
