The 2018 Great American Cleanup is scheduled to occur in the City of Peoria on Saturday, April 28th. This event provides an opportunity to build a sense of community pride and stewardship in our neighborhoods by eliminating blight. In support of this effort, the City of Peoria Community Development Department, along with Keep Peoria Beautiful, will continue to aid in the facilitation of volunteer events and education programs that help to remove litter and reduce waste throughout the community.

The Community Development Department supplies dumpsters and volunteers to enhance neighborhood cleanup efforts during the Great American Cleanup. While it is important to maintain clean and healthy neighborhoods year round, this nationwide effort is a wonderful opportunity for the City to partner with neighborhood associations to make a lasting impact. Picking up trash is a simple way to appreciate our neighborhoods and gives us all more reasons to Appreciate Peoria.

To request a dumpster for your neighborhood cleanup, please complete the application. Completed applications should be emailed to Code Enforcement Supervisor Ashley Elias at aelias@peoriagov.org. The City of Peoria allocates 20 dumpsters for the Great American Clean Up event and they are assigned on a first come, first served basis. If all dumpsters are allocated, your Neighborhood Association can request a dumpster for an alternative date throughout the year.
