They're urging Illinois residents to visit the site, send a message to legislators and the governor and share the site through Facebook and Twitter.

The City of Peoria is considering whether to extend its contract with the Peoria Disposal Company.


The City’s contract with PDC expires at the end of the year, but it specifies the municipality needs to decide by Friday whether to extend the agreement for another three years.

The Peoria City Council Monday unanimously approved extending that window for another 60 days.
