Geneva fall leaf collection to start in November

Oct 12, 2017 11:15AM

Geneva residents can map out their fall yard work schedule after the City announced the collection dates for its 2017 curbside leaf program.

The City’s curbside leaf pickup is divided into three geographical zones, with each zone collected three times using vacuum truck equipment. Every street will be targeted one time during each of the three separate leaf pickups.

Residents are required to rake their leaves to the parkway no later than 7 a.m. on the Monday of their scheduled pickup week. Leaves placed on the parkway after the crews have passed will not be collected until the next scheduled date.

The curbside collection zones and start dates (each zone takes a few days to complete) are:

Zone A: East side of the Fox River

o   First pickup: Monday, Nov. 6

o   Second pickup: Thursday, Nov. 16

o   Final pickup: Tuesday, Nov. 28

Zone B: West side of the Fox River, north of Route 38 or north of Kaneville Road and north of Keslinger Road

o   First pickup: Wednesday, Nov. 8

o   Second pickup: Monday, Nov. 20

o   Final pickup: Wednesday, Nov. 29

Zone C: West side of the Fox River, south of Route 38 or south of Kaneville Road and south of Keslinger Road

o   First pickup: Wednesday, Nov. 1

o   Second pickup: Monday, Nov. 13

o   Final pickup: Monday, Nov. 27

Residents living on State Street, Kaneville Road or Keslinger Road are part of Zone B.

If crews finish a zone early, they may jump ahead to the next area to work ahead of schedule. However, they will return on the designated start date to make sure every street has been collected.

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.

The City has an additional leaf bag collection program that runs from Dec. 1 to Dec. 30. Refuse stickers are not required, but bags must only contain leaves. Yard waste, mulch or grass clippings mixed with leaves will not be accepted. Bags can be placed at the curb on residents’ regular garbage day.

Full details about both programs can be found on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us
