Recycling Presentations and Tours

The City of Peoria collects about 70,000 tons of waste each year and delivers it to local landfills. Much of this waste can be diverted from landfills and recycled. Last year Peoria's citizens diverted approximately 16,000 tons of waste from area landfills!  Great job!  Let's divert even more!

Recycling Makes Sense

Here's why

  • Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators
  • Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals
  • Prevents pollution caused by reducing the need to collect new raw materials
  • Saves energy
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change
  • Helps sustain the environment for future generations
  • Helps create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States

Here’s how

  • Recyclable materials collected are taken to an area materials recovery facility, or MRF. 
  • City receives money depending on how clean the recyclable materials are (the cleaner the recyclables the higher the dollar amount per ton). 
  • These funds help keep Peoria's solid waste collection fees low.
  • At the MRF, the collected materials are sorted and bundled for sale on the open market (this is why it is important to buy goods made from reycled materials).
