Residents whose garbage is picked up by the city must purchase a 96-gallon toter-type refuse container. The toter hooks onto the garbage truck when the trash is collected.
Residents who already have a toter are unaffected by this change.
Approved receptacles must be a 96-gallon toter. The toter may be purchased from the City of East Peoria at City Hall at 401 W. Washington Street, 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.
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.
The toter price is $60 (subject to change). Delivery by the City Public Works Department is free of charge.
