Wheeled Toters for Recycling
Wheeled Toters Replacing Current Recycling Bins
East Peoria residents who recycle should now order the City’s new wheeled recycling toter. The City has two sizes of wheeled cart available. The 96 gallon (large) size is currently $75 (subject to change). The 48 gallon (small) size is currently $65 (subject to change). These containers are equipped with a bright blue lid to designate to the driver it contains recyclable materials.
East Peoria’s recycling program is voluntary.
How to Purchase
Residents can purchase a toter online, using our secure, convenient system provided through the Illinois State Treasurer's Office. Accepted credit cards are Visa and MasterCard. No additional fees are charged for paying online. The Public Works office is automatically notified to deliver your toter once you have made your purchase.
They can also be ordered and paid for at East Peoria City Hall, 401 W,. Washington St.
The recycling toters replace the 18-gallon red or blue recycling bins. Glass is accepted for recycling in the new toter.
Painting Existing Garbage Toter for Recycling
Those who have several garbage toters have the option of painting a toter lid blue, thus making it a recycling toter and eliminating the need to order one. The paint we recommend is Rust-oleum Gloss Brilliant Blue spray paint.
What to Do with Your Old Bins
Once they have received their new recycling toter, residents can use the small bins for storing their recycling material or keep them for personal use.
East Peoria Green Team is encouraging East Peoria residents to consider returning their old red/blue recycle bins to Public Works. As you can imagine we could potentially reuse many bins. All you need to do is bring them empty and clean to:
Public Works Department
2232 E Washington Street
East Peoria, IL 61611
From there they will be dispersed as requested by the East Peoria Green Team.
