Food Scrap Program

Food Scrap ProgramGeneva residents have the option to dispose of their food scraps as part of LRS' (Lakeshore Recycling Systems) waste program with the City.

Permitted items should be mixed with traditional yard waste materials such as grass, leaves and branches in either a brown Kraft yard waste bag (with waste sticker attached) or an LRS yard waste cart (with a seasonal subscription fee). Food scraps can be disposed of with yard waste from April to November.

The combined yard waste and food scraps will be delivered to an approved and permitted commercial compost processing facility.
