The city of Peoria Community Development Department will host the final Weekly Community Cleanup event at Noon on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 2321 N Wisconsin Avenue, Peoria, IL 61603. The city of Peoria Community Development Department hosted eight weekly clean up events and engaged 210 volunteers from neighborhood associations, community groups, and not-for-profits, collecting over 300 trash bags over the two month period.

At these events, Community Development Department staff provide trash bags, gloves, and a limited number of garbage pickers for residents, community members, and groups who would like to help. Participants are asked to bring their own face covering and are expected to maintain social distancing measures during the cleanup to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Community Development Department appreciates Peoria for all the wonderful residents and advocates who work hard to improve their neighborhoods and dedicate themselves to improving their community.
