(Peoria, IL)—The City’s collection of yard waste for 2012 will end on Friday, November 30, 2012 and resume April 1, 2013, for the residents served by Peoria Disposal Company (PDC).
Yard waste set out for collection must be in:
- Garbage cans marked “Yard Waste Only” which do not exceed 45 gallons in size not over 50 pounds in weight;
- Paper yard waste bags may not exceed 30 pounds in weight;
- Bundles should not exceed five feet in length or 50 pounds in weight;
- Large 95 gallon wheeled tote carts compatible with the left mechanism on PDC’s vehicles clearly marked “Yard Waste Only.”
Any cans, bags or bundles which do not meet the above requirements will not be collected.
Each collection route serves approximately 1,200 homes each day and adhering to the size and weight limits is essential in avoiding injuries to collection employees. The 95 gallon wheeled tote carts can be either purchased or rented directly from PDC. Households can purchase a cart for $65 or rent one for $2.50 a month.
