In 2006 the Mayor’s Litter Committee kicked-off a campaign to reduce litter strewn about our streets, sidewalks and alleys. Through the years committee members have contributed personal time and sweat equity to advance the goal of a cleaner Peoria. The committee has evolved into a steering committee which supports and encourages cleanup efforts in the following ways:
- loaning litter grabbers, safety vests, trash bags and buckets to residents for neighborhood cleanups;
- loaning the "Pride Pals" mascots to residents hosting cleanups and environmental themed events: (See Pride Pals photo below.)
- collaborating with Peoria Disposal Company in the dispensation of trash and landscape dumpsters for cleanups sponsored by registered neighborhood associations
- providing information about Peoria's litter campaign, litter hot spots, and the history of successful cleanup efforts during the campaign.
