Where do I put my cart and when will it be picked up?

On your collection day, set the recycling cart at the curb or alley, wherever your trash cart is picked up.

Carts need to be set out before 6:00 a.m. on your collection day. It may be put out as early at 3:00 p.m. the previous day. Be sure the cart is not blocked by cars, snow, or mailboxes and is at least three feet away from other carts.

After pickup, move the recycling cart from the curb or alley by 5:00 p.m. It needs to be placed in your garage or along the side of your house or garage, it cannot be in front or back of your house.


If your recycling pickup date falls on one of these holidays, pickup will be one day late.

Using Your New Recycling Cart

Make sure your cart lid is closed.

Make sure your recycling cart is three feet away from your trash cart.

Place cart so the front is facing outward along the edge of the curb or alley.

Do not put needles, hazardous waste, yard waste, or electronic waste in your cart.

What can I recycle? What can’t I recycle?

The City of Peoria will continue to offer single stream recycling which means no need to sort materials. All acceptable materials can be put directly into your recycling cart, simply make sure they are empty and rinsed out.
