Geneva residents should take notice that garbage collection rates will be adjusted starting Monday, July 1 as part of the City’s contract with Lakeshore Recycling Systems.
A refuse sticker will now cost $2.72. However, people who purchased stickers at the previous rate of $2.60 can use their remaining supply without paying the difference. Prices for optional garbage cart subscriptions also will increase less than a dollar per billing cycle, according to the contract.
Even with the rate adjustments, Geneva residents will continue to pay less for stickers and cart service at the conclusion of the Lakeshore contract in 2023 than they did in spring 2018.
Garbage collection the week of July 1 will be pushed back one day later than normal due to the Independence Day holiday.
