Storm Debris Cleanup

The city of Peoria’s first priority is always public safety. This is true for the Department of Public Works too when preparing for and cleaning up after storms. Our Department takes weather events seriously. It’s why any downed trees, limbs/branches are picked up as soon as possible following extreme weather events where there’s damage.

The City asks residents for their cooperation in our response and cleanup effort. Residents are asked to follow these steps in assisting with debris collection:

Watch for Updates:
An interactive map of the preestablished Public Works collections routes with daily status updates is viewable here:

GIS Storm Debris Cleanup Map Tracker

Property owners can track the status of their route’s pickup to determine if the route is incomplete, in progress or complete. If the map shows your property in green (route complete) yet you still have storm debris in your yard, contact Public Works via the options listed above.

Get it Together:

Property Owners who have storm debris involving trees
 and limbs/branches are advised to gather and place them neatly at the curb wherever plausible, and as soon as possible. For efficiency purposes, residents should aim to group the debris in 50 pound bundles that are no longer than five feet. 

For Your Safety and the Safety of Others: 

  • Do not place storm debris in roadways or block sidewalks. 
  • Public Works will not pick up any other yard waste or anything placed inside a landscape waste bag.  
  • City workers will not go onto private property to remove trees, limbs/branches, or other storm debris. Property owners should contact a private tree removal company for help if they cannot remove trees and associated debris. 
  • Do not place storm debris in ravines, creeks or open channels as this can block pipes and culverts. 

Patience, Please.
Peoria property owners are asked to be patient with the cleanup schedule. Collecting all of the debris will take several days and could last as long as two weeks. No public or private organization currently has the resources to single-handedly clean up Peoria within a day’s time. Debris pickup is a team effort and your cooperation is necessary to ensure cleanup is as fast and efficient as possible.
