Initial implementation of the new carts has been complete.  Please read the brochure that is attached to your cart for detailed information, this will help to answer most of your questions regarding the new program. Residents who do not receive carts should call the Peru City Clerk’s Office at 815-223-0061. Addresses where carts are dropped that are vacant or do not use garbage service should call the Peru City Clerk’s Office as well.

The City of Peru understands there will be some growing pains and appreciates your patience as this new service rolls out. Arrangements will be made to accommodate residents requesting smaller 65-gallon carts only after full implementation is complete.

The City of Peru along with Republic Services would like to provide some additional information regarding upcoming changes to the recycling/waste program.

With the implementation of the 95-gallon carts, stickers for extra trash should not be needed. Residents who still have garbage stickers will be allowed to use them until June 29th. After June 29th, loose trash bags with garbage stickers will not be picked up.

Starting July 2, 2018, residents will be required to use the provided carts for waste and recycling pickup. Carts must be placed at the curb with wheels and handle facing your home with the lid opening facing the street and at least 3ft away from all other objects, including your other can. Please have carts out for collection by 6:00 am.

For bulk item pickup, please call 815-434-2035 or
