East Peoria Green hosted a recycling event on Sat. Oct. 3rd. We did this because the city of East Peoria stopped doing curbside recycling. It was a successful event. We filled this doghouse roll off to about 8 inches from the windows you see. We would like to thank East Peoria Dist. 86 for letting us use their parking lot. Thanks to AREA Recycling for bringing the roll offs and picking them up at no charge. The workers you see in the picture are all from EPCHS. They are members of the HOPE Club, which is an environmental group. Finally thanks to all those who brought us their recyclable material.
The city council is currently examining some ‘Requests for Proposals’ to restart our recycling program. We hope they will find a proposal the city can select.
