Update: They do charge something for recycling, I’m attempting to find out how much. It depends on where you live in Peoria. The City does have drop off locations.

The City of Peoria just approved a new 7 year contract with a possible 3 year extension for private garbage service that includes recycling.
THREE companies submitted bids.
Video of the Council meeting is available here: http://www.peoriagov.org/city-council/meetings/
I watched only enough to find out how much residents will pay for garbage, recycling, and brush pickup.
Before I tell you what Peoria residents pay for PRIVATE service – negotiated by the City, let’s review what Bloomington passed in February so their employees can pick up your garbage etc: https://blnnews.com/2018/02/27/solid-waste-done/
First – share this information will all your friends who think private service will be much more expensive.
Second, the City Manager of Peoria clearly states on the video the majority of the citizens of Peoria are happy with the service they have.
Third, wash “Sucker” off your forehead where the City Council stamped it.
How many votes does keeping City employees busy buy?
