The Geneva City Council approved a new five-year garbage contract June 5 with LRS, the City’s current refuse provider. Collection days and services are remaining the same as part of the new contract, which will run from July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2028. Residents can keep disposing of trash with a “pay as you throw” user-base model using waste stickers or continue subscribing to their existing LRS garbage cart. Customers also will keep using their existing recycling carts as normal.The current light blue stickers with an expiration date of June 30, 2023 will be valid through July 31, 2023. Residents should be mindful of how many stickers they purchase in June.The City and LRS also are working to establish a waste sticker exchange program where residents will be able to trade in their existing, expiring stickers for new ones. Details will be announced later this month.The start of the new contract brings new refuse rates for stickers and cart service. The new blue and white stickers that are part of the 2023-28 contract will be available to purchase at the City’s Finance Department, 15 S. First St.; online via PayPal on the City’s website, and at select local retailers in the coming weeks.As a reminder, stickers should be looped around the garbage can handles so LRS drivers can rip them off easily. Customers who affix the sticker flat on their garbage can or lid risk not having their trash picked up that week.Refuse collection will be delayed one day later than normal the week of July 3 due to the Independence Day holiday. The normal Thursday-Friday schedule will resume the following week.More information about Geneva’s garbage rates and refuse services, which includes yard waste pickup, a food scrap program, and electronics recycling, can be found on the City’s website.
