Garbage / Recycling / Yard Waste

Lakeshore Garbage

Service Starts In July

The City of Geneva's refuse and recycling services is now being provided by Lakeshore Recycling Systems effective July 1, 2018. This webpage highlights key components of the waste hauler transition. More detailed information about programs and services can be found on the menu bar on this webpage.

Please note, the City's new garbage contract does not apply to residents of the Mill Creek subdivision, which is unincorporated and not located within the City's corporate boundary limits. Please call Kane County regarding garbage questions.

Weekly Pickups & Rates

Garbage collection days will remain on Thursday and Friday. Residents still have the option to use garbage stickers to dispose of their trash or they can use a garbage cart that has a monthly subscription fee.

Garbage rates for stickers, 20-gallon bags and carts also are available online.


After honoring old Advanced Disposal stickers for a 30-day grace period, Lakeshore Recycling now requires residents to use the company's blue stickers only going forward. 

The price of stickers has decreased as part of the new vendor contract. A list of retail locations selling garbage stickers is available online.

Ongoing Transition Issues

Lakeshore Recycling

Most Geneva residents serviced by the City's contract with Lakeshore Recycling received their recycling and (optional) garbage subscription carts in either late June or early July. However, there are still some outstanding issues the company is working to resolve with customers to complete the transition.

Customers have the option to change the size of their recycling or garbage carts for free with Lakeshore through Friday, Aug. 31. Lakeshore has been ordering more carts and should be delivering them to residents soon. 

The first Lakeshore bill to garbage cart customers will be issued in mid-August and will cover the months of July-September. Billing will always be quarterly and three months in advance going forward.

Having a problem not listed above. Contact Lakeshore Recycling's customer service team.
