City of Peoria extends yard waste collection for next week
“If we don’t pick it up are people going to leave it by the curb, are they going to dispose of it in other parts of the city where they may just get rid of it, are they going to burn it which is a problem,” Urich says.
Urich says residents should set out yard waste on their normal garbage collection day starting next week before 6 a.m. Waste must be in appropriate garbage cans, bags or totes. Urich says the extra week of yard waste collection will cost the city more than $50,000.
