Geneva residents looking to tackle some yard work this spring should take note that the City’s 2016 brush collection starts in April.
The monthly brush program 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 crews will not collect material produced by a private contractor.
The collection schedule is the weeks of:
West Side Of The Fox River
East Side Of The Fox River
Since collection days can vary, residents should place brush and limbs on the parkway by 7 a.m. Monday on their scheduled 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, and no foreign materials, such as construction debris, fencing, lumber, wire, grass clippings, flowers, and garden waste will be collected.
