Geneva residents who plan to tackle spring yard work in the coming weeks should take note that the City’s 2021 monthly brush collection program starts in April.
Brush pickup 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. Kramer Tree Specialists will not collect material produced by a private contractor.
The brush program divides the City into two zones with each zone being collected one time per month April through November. A schedule, regulations and a collection progress map that will be updated weekday mornings can be found on the City’s website. Residents living on any of the border streets detailed on the map are included in Zone 1.
Since collection days can vary, residents should place brush and limbs on the parkway by 7 a.m. Monday on their desinated 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, flowers, and garden waste will be collected.
