Geneva’s garbage collection rates will be adjusted starting Thursday, July 1 as part of the City’s contract with Lakeshore Recycling Systems.
A refuse sticker will cost $2.97 beginning in July. However, people who purchased stickers at the current rate of $2.84 can use their remaining supply without paying the difference. Prices for optional garbage cart subscriptions also will increase by less than a dollar per billing cycle, according to the contract.
Even with the rate adjustments, Geneva residents will continue to pay less for refuse stickers and cart service at the conclusion of the Lakeshore contract in 2023 than they did in spring 2018.
Other optional refuse products and services that will see new prices beginning in July include:
- 20-gallon bags – $2.28; and
- 65-gallon yard waste carts – $28.53 monthly fee
