Yard Waste Pickup Starts Next Week

March 12, 2019

The City of Peoria’s yard waste pickup season kicks off next week on Monday, March 18, 2019.  PDC will pick up yard waste weekly, on the same day as trash.

Yard waste materials include grass clippings, leaves, tree limbs, and brush and must be set out for collection in one of the following options.

  • Use plastic or metal garbage cans that are between 40 and 45 gallons in size, with two handles, and a tight-fitting lid.
  • Use wheeled carts that are either 65 or 95-gallon size.  Residents are encouraged to not use the City of Peoria trash carts for yard waste. The limbs and branches cause harm on the carts and reduce the life of the City’s carts.
  • Paper yard waste bags which may not exceed 30 pounds in weight.
  • Tree limbs and sticks can be bundled with nonmetallic cord, such as twine, but must be less than five feet in length and less than 50 pounds.

If yard waste is not bagged or in a container, it will not be picked up. Check out the video below to learn more about yard waste collection details.

Please label cans or carts with “Yard Waste Only”.  Yard waste stickers are available at City Hall, Public Works or any Peoria Disposal Company (PDC) location.

As with trash and recycling, all yard waste materials must be set out by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day.  Set cans, carts, or materials next to your trash cart, leaving three feet of space between and avoiding obstacles such as cars, snow, or mailboxes.  Any cans or carts need to be removed from the curb or alley by 5:00 p.m.

PDC will continue to pick up yard waste weekly through the week of December 9-13, 2019.  You can check out more information in Yard Waste.
