[ARCHIVED] City Offers Free Yard Waste Pickup For Two Weeks

Yard Waste Bags

Geneva residents will be able to get a jump start on their spring yard work with free collection available during the final two weeks of March.

The free yard waste disposal is part of the City’s new refuse contract with Lakeshore Recycling Systems, Inc., which was approved by the City Council last year. Yard waste bags set at the curb will be picked up for free – no refuse sticker required – on residents’ regular garbage day the weeks of March 18 and 25.

Yard waste should be placed in Kraft brown paper bags, which should not weigh more than 50 pounds. Accepted yard waste items include grass clippings, vines, weeds, leaves, plants, pinecones, small branches and garden waste.

Starting in April, a refuse sticker will need to be affixed to each bag as part of the regular yard waste program, which runs through November.

Tree limbs exceeding 1 inch in diameter should be disposed of as part of the City’s monthly brush collection, which is scheduled to start in April.

More information about Geneva’s refuse and recycling services can be found on the City’s website.
