[ARCHIVED] Advanced To Remove Carts After Pickup Next Week; Sticker Update

Advanced Disposal Garbage


The City of Geneva officially ran out of Advanced Disposal's yellow garbage stickers June 28. Residents still needing to purchase Advanced stickers can do so at Pride of Geneva, 1166 E. State St. as well as the Jewel Foods in St. Charles, Batavia and Elburn.

Lakeshore Recycling begins service in Geneva next week, and the company's blue stickers are available at Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First St.; the City's Finance Division, 15 S. First St.; and participating retail locations. As a reminder, Lakeshore will be honoring Advanced Disposal stickers through the month of July.

For more information, visit the City's Lakeshore transition webpage.

Original News Release

As Geneva’s garbage contract with Advanced Disposal winds down to a close this month, residents should place their Advanced Disposal garbage and recycling carts – full or empty – at the curb on their normal garbage day the week of June 25.

All Advanced Disposal carts will be removed following the final trash pickup. Residents should leave the carts at the curb and not bring them back into their garage since a separate truck will be collecting them once they are emptied.

For residents who may be on vacation and cannot arrange for a neighbor to put the carts out at the curb, contact Advanced Disposal’s customer service department via email at or by calling 630-587-8282.  

Although Lakeshore Recycling will be delivering their own carts within the next week, residents should be using Advanced Disposal carts and garbage stickers through the end of June. Many retail locations have stopped selling Advanced Disposal stickers given the upcoming vendor transition, but people can purchase them at City Hall, 22 S. First St. or at the City’s Finance Division, 15 S. First St.

The vast majority of Advanced Disposal customers received their last quarterly bill that paid for service through the end of June several months ago. However, there are some residents on a separate billing cycle that was invoiced for services through August. For these affected customers, Advanced Disposal will be closing their accounts at the end of June and issuing refunds for the remaining two months. Customers who have not received a refund by Wednesday, Aug. 1 should contact Advanced Disposal’s customer service department.

Lakeshore Transition Plan

For homes serviced by the City’s refuse contract, Lakeshore will begin delivering free, 65-gallon recycling carts from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 23 and will continue into next week.

Lakeshore’s light blue refuse stickers can be purchased at Geneva City Hall, the City’s Finance Division and will be available at participating retail locations in the coming days. Lakeshore also will be honoring the yellow Advanced Disposal stickers through the end of July.

Residents who currently are utilizing an Advanced Disposal garbage cart will be receiving the same size model from Lakeshore in late June. Garbage and recycling carts may not necessarily be delivered on the same day.

People desiring a different size recycling or garbage cart can do so for free by contacting Lakeshore’s customer service department at 630-581-8650 or via email at prior to Friday, Aug. 31.

Geneva’s garbage collection schedule is remaining the same under Lakeshore, but the new waste hauler’s first pickup in July will be one day later than normal due to the Independence Day holiday. Residents can find more information about the transition to Lakeshore Recycling on the City’s website.
