Garbage Guidelines
  • All trash must be in a toter - no additional bags or other containers may be used.
  • Residents may use a maximum of three (3) toters.
  • Landscape waste or building materials are not accepted.
  • Cardboard boxes must be broken down flat, they can not be used as a receptacle.



Recycling

We are currently out of recycling bins.
 
Residents are provided up to two containers and lids at no charge. If additional containers are required the cost is $14.00 for each container.

Currently, 54 percent of East Peoria's 7,800 households are participating in the recycling program.
 
 

Aluminum cans, tin cans, newspapers, magazines, junk mail, white milk jugs, cardboard boxes, and plastic containers with the designation 1-5 and 7 (with the exception of oil bottles) will be accepted.
 

Currently glass is not accepted. 

As with garbage pick-up, items picked up are limited to normal household refuse.

Recyclables are picked up weekly on your regular garbage day. They must be set at the curb no later than 6 a.m. Recyclables should be rinsed out, lids should be removed from plastic containers and cardboard boxes must be broken down flat.

Large boxes must be cut into halves or fourths.

Recycling bin/s must be out for cardboard to be recycled, otherwise it is considered garbage and will not be picked up.
