Mandatory Garbage Toters

Paying for garbage toters

Residents whose garbage is picked up by the city must purchase a toter-type refuse container.

The toter may be purchased from the City of East Peoria Public Works Department, leased from Waste Management or purchased at a local merchant as long as it meets city specifications.

A limit of three toters may be set out for garbage pickup.

Toter price: $60 (subject to change). Delivery by the city is free of charge.

If a resident purchases a toter from the city it is a one-time payment. In the unlikely event that the truck damages the can we will repair it.
