Waste Collection Services
On January 1, 2010, the residents of the City of Peoria will have a new garbage collection
provider. PDC Services, Inc. (PDC) will be the solid waste collector for the disposal of
residential garbage, landscape waste and recyclables in the City of Peoria. The City
Council endorsed the company’s proposal in October 2009 that offers the same quality
services that residents have come to expect plus the addition of a new recycling service
at no charge. PDC is a local, family-owned company with over 80 years of experience in
the waste collection business.
