The City of Pekin Solid Waste department includes three divisions, Solid Waste (garbage), Recycling and Yard waste. The Solid Waste Department picks up solid waste, recycling and yard waste curbside on a weekly basis to single-family dwellings and duplexes. This Department is also responsible for collections of solid waste at all City operated facilities and the containers located along the sidewalks downtown.
The Solid Waste Department will pick up large/bulky items such as couches and other furniture at the curb.
The City of Pekin operates a wheeled garbage tote program for the collection of household waste and recycling. You may purchase a tote on the second floor of City Hall. Totes are normally delivered curbside within one to two business days.
Please see the Solid Waste Collection Map, where you may type in your address to determine your collection day.
