Special Geneva curbside leaf program resumes in March for most of the city

Feb 24, 2017 10:11AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

The City’s curbside leaf collection vacuum program is scheduled to restart operations for the two-thirds of Geneva residents who did not receive a special fourth pickup last fall.

The special collection will take place the week of March 13 for the following areas:

 ·         Zone A – East of the Fox River

 ·         Zone C – West of the Fox River, south of Route 38 or south of Kaneville Road and south of Keslinger Road.

Residents living in these zones should have their leaves raked to the parkway no later than 7 a.m. Monday, March 13. Operations will take about one week to complete.

Geneva’s curbside leaf collection passed every street three times during October and November as part of its annual program. However, after a delayed start to the fall season and inquiries from residents, the City Council authorized a special fourth pickup Nov. 21 throughout the community.

The City’s leaf contractor was able to finish Zone B on the City’s northwest side during the last week of November. Work was scheduled to begin in December for Zones A & C before snow and freezing temperatures halted operations.

Residents living in Zone B (west of the Fox River, north of Route 38 or north of Kaneville Road and north of Keslinger Road; residents living on these streets are part of Zone B) will not be receiving another pickup in March since their leaves were collected last fall.

For residents in Zones A & C, leaves should be raked to the parkway parallel to the street and about 12 inches behind the curb or edge of the pavement. Raking leaves into the street or curb/gutter can clog storm sewers, which can later result in street flooding.

Leaf piles containing either yard waste or brush will not be collected. Geneva’s yard waste and brush programs are scheduled to begin in April for all homes throughout the City. People also should make sure their leaf piles are clear of cars and other obstructions that would prevent the contractor’s vacuum trucks from accessing the parkways. Leaves placed at the curb after the crews have passed will not be collected.

A map and full leaf collection program regulations can be found on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us. Questions can be directed to the Geneva Public Works Department at 630-232-1501.
