Mar 17, 2017 10:57AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines
For residents who have taken advantage of the mild winter
weather to get a head start on their spring yard work, their first opportunity
to dispose of yard waste and brush will be April, per the City’s refuse
Residents who have put out yard waste bags with refuse stickers at the curb in March will need to store them in their garage until their normal garbage day Thursday, April 6 or Friday, April 7. Yard waste will subsequently be collected weekly through November. A list of acceptable items that can discarded in yard waste bags with stickers can be found on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us.
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. The City’s vendor will not collect material produced by a private contractor.
Brush collection will take place the weeks of:
West Side Of The Fox River East Side Of The Fox River
April 3 April 10
May 1 May 8
June 5 June 12
Aug. 7 July 10
Sept. 4 Aug. 14
Oct. 2 Oct. 9
Nov. 6 Nov. 13
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. No foreign materials, such as construction debris, fencing, lumber, wire, grass clippings, flowers, and garden waste will be collected.
