As spring yard work surfaces on many people’s to-do lists in the coming weeks, Geneva residents can start disposing of brush in April.
Brush pickup is intended for the disposal of tree limbs and branches that are removed by the property owner for normal maintenance and upkeep, not for lot clearing. Kramer Tree Specialists will not collect material produced by a private contractor.
The City’s brush program divides Geneva into two zones with each zone being picked up one time per month April through November. A schedule, regulations and a progress map that will be updated weekday mornings can be found on the City’s website.
Since collection days can vary, residents should place brush and limbs on the parkway by 7 a.m. Monday on their designated week. Crews will not return to a neighborhood until the next scheduled pickup.
Tree branches must be stacked with the cut ends facing in one direction toward the curb or edge of the pavement – not in the street. Branches and stumps cannot exceed 12 inches in diameter, and tree limbs should be less than 12 feet in length.
Residents should not tie bundles of branches with rope or wire. No foreign materials, such as construction debris, fencing, lumber, wire, grass, flowers, and garden waste will be collected.
