Curbside Recycling - The Easiest Way to Recycle!

Signing up for your community's curbside recycling program is the easiest and most efficient way to divert useful resources from our local landfill. Businesses may also participate in single-stream recycling programs. Contact your local vendor for details:

Do you live in unincorporated Peoria County? We suggest reaching out to Eagle Enterprises (888-932-2936) or Peoria Disposal Company/AREA (309-674-5176) to see if they collect in your area.

Please Keep Drop-Off Sites Clean!

  • Place accepted materials in bins only, not on the ground next to them. Bins may seem full, but more materials can usually be shoved inside. 
  • Break down and flatten cardboard boxes.
  • Do not unload garbage, tires, furniture, yard waste, or electronics. There are other appropriate recycling and disposal options for these items.
  • Keeping drop-off locations tidy encourages host sites to continue being partners in recycling!
