As of January 1, 2012, a new Illinois law states that landfills will no longer be able to accept electronic waste. For disposal recommendations please visit Illinois EPA.
You can do something about unsightly accumulation of junk or garbage on someone's private property whether it's in their yard, driveway or along the alley. Contact the city of Peoria Code Enforcement's Nuisance Abatement Inspector at 309-494-8654 and state the address.
Safe Needle and Syringe Disposal
NEVER put needles and syringes in your garbage or recycling container. These items must be placed into a properly sealed container such as detergent or bleach bottles or proper Sharps containers before being placed in the trash. Some pharmacies will also accept Sharps containers. Please consult the Peoria County Solid Waste Management at 309-681-2550.
