Solid Waste

The City of Pekin Solid Waste Department includes three divisions, Garbage, Recycling and Yard Waste. The Solid Waste Department picks up solid 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 City of Pekin operates a wheeled garbage cart program for the collection of household waste and recycling. You may purchase a tote on the second floor of City Hall. Carts are normally delivered curbside within one to two business days.
