Due to the extreme weather, Lakeshore Recycling Systems will be suspending recycling collection the week of Jan. 28 in Geneva.
Garbage pickup will still take place one day later than normal on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1-2.
Geneva residents are encouraged not to put their recycling carts outside and should wait for the following week’s standard service day.
Residents who do opt to place recycling carts at the curb Feb. 1-2 will notice those carts being dumped, along with their waste, into a garbage truck. The company stated the decision was a last-resort measure that was made based on the safety and welfare of its drivers.
Lakeshore notified the City about the suspended recycling collection Jan. 31.
Both garbage and recycling will be picked up on the normal Thursday-Friday schedule the week of Feb. 4. For more information about Geneva's refuse services, visit the City's website.
