The City of Peoria’s contract for garbage collection expires next year. There are proposals from three companies and one from the city itself for a new contract. Rather than considering a single proposal, city staff is recommending a hybrid approach. Staff is suggesting the current refuse collector, PDC Services, would continue to pick up garbage. But instead of PDC gathering yard waste and recyclables as it now does, the city would assume collection of those items.
