Peoria Disposal Co. (PDC) will begin collecting trash, recyclables and landscaping waste from residents of Peoria, Ill., on Jan 1., 2010. The firm’s contract with the city is for five years.
“Winning this contract is a milestone for our business,” said Matt Coulter, vice president of solid waste sales and recycling for PDC, in a press release. “Our business began in the Peoria area in 1928, but we haven’t had residential collection services in the city since 1970, so we’re entering a new era. We are so proud of our employees and are excited to have the opportunity to service our community.”
To service the contract, PDC purchased 10 rear loaders and three front loaders from McNeilus to add to its fleet.
