Thurday and Friday pickup will be one day late. Yard waste pickup will not be affected. Please note the 29th is the last day for yard waste pickup.
All decorations and flowers should be removed from the Peru City Cemetery by October 31st for fall clean-up. Winter decorations and grave blankets may be placed after November 15th to February 29th. Weather permitting.
Weather permitting. Leaves are to be raked to the curb but NOT IN the street. Leaves in the street restrict the water flow to sewers and cause street flooding. Do not rake twigs, brush, branches or grass clippings with leaves. Do not bag leaves or put in cans. Note that cars blocking access to leaves will not be vacuumed. The truck needs to park directly in front of the pile. Contact the Public Services department for questions or concerns at 815-223-2962.
