Due to the extreme heat in the forecast, Lakeshore Recycling Systems will begin collecting garbage and recycling 30 minutes earlier than normal Thursday and Friday, July 18-19.

Refuse drivers normally start their routes at 7 a.m., but the City has granted permission to begin at 6:30 a.m. the next two days to help avoid the brunt of hot weather.

Geneva residents are encouraged to put their garbage and recycling out this evening to accommodate the schedule change.

The National Weather Service has upgraded the upcoming forecast to an Excessive Heat Warning for noon Thursday, July 18 to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 20.

High temperatures will peak well into the 90s each day with Friday and Saturday potentially in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees. Adding humidity to the equation will make high temperatures feel like 104 to 114 degrees each afternoon.

The cumulative effects of the weather could lead to heat-related illnesses with prolonged exposure. People should plan ahead to have a cool place to shelter from the heat and avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the warmest times of the day.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur.

Please read the City’s original alert post for a list of important safety tips.
