The Code Enforcement Division is committed to monitoring neighborhoods plagued by blight and taking the necessary steps to uphold the City’s housing and environmental standards. As a citizen of Peoria, you can help keep the neighborhoods safe and clean by doing your part and being a good neighbor.

Garbage Collection

  • Do NOT use plastic bags for garbage disposal. Bags can be torn open by animals.
  • Use your trash cart.
  • Do NOT set trash out before 3 p.m. the day prior to pick-up. Remember to retrieve cans by 5 p.m. following your scheduled pickup.
  • Cans should be placed within three feet of the curb or alley line.


The City code define weeds as “Weeds means all noxious vegetation and all grasses, annual plants and vegetation other than trees or shrubs which exceed a height or length of ten inches; provided, however, this term shall not include cultivated flowers and gardens.” Grass and weeds must not exceed ten inches in height. Fines may be issued or grass and weeds may be cut at the owners expense. Part of being a good neighbor means keeping your lawn cut and maintained.

Housing Exterior

The City code says that all exterior surfaces, including but not limited to, doors, door frames, window frames, cornices, porches, trim, balconies, decks, and fences should be maintained in good condition. Peeling, flaking, and chipped paint shall be eliminated and surfaces repainted. Buildings with deteriorated paint, damaged siding, or siding that is not water tight are a blighting influence on the neighborhood. Being a good neighbor means taking caring of your structure and not allowing the paint to peel or the siding to remain damaged.
